I Got Hit, What’s Next?
If you have been involved in an accident, call the police to document the accident. Even if it seems like the property damage is minor, it is important to document what happened, who was involved, and the details surrounding the accident before the other driver leaves the scene. If someone was injured, the police will take names and contact information of any witnesses and write down their statements. Your personal injury lawyer can use this information to help you get fair compensation from the other driver’s insurance carrier.
It is important to save all your receipts related to medical bills, medications, lost wages from missed work, and travel costs to and from doctor appointments. If you sustained any visible injuries that can be photographed, take pictures of those as well. All of this will help your attorney make a strong case against a negligent driver and/or their insurance company. Finally, get in touch with a GTS personal injury lawyer and give them any information you have gathered thus far.
