Safety First

You and your family's safety is the most important thing, both in the immediate aftermath of a car accident and during your recovery process. Make sure that everyone involved is safe and given medical attention as soon as possible. Even if it seems as though everyone is physically fine, it's a good idea to see a doctor regardless just to make sure that nothing goes unchecked. If you or one of your family members needs to receive emergency attention due to the accident, be sure to stay calm. If possible, designate a trusted adult as early on as possible to be your emergency responders' point of contact for logistical things related to the accident: where your car is being towed, how they can access the police report, the names and additional information about the officers who responded, and the information of the hospital where you and any other loved ones will be treated. This is an effective way to make sure that no important information falls through the cracks early on.

Keep a Record

Speaking of not letting anything fall through the cracks, you (or a trusted person in case you were seriously injured) should make it a priority to keep a detailed log of all care, expenses, and other consequences of the accident. This should include everything from medical diagnoses and prescriptions to healthcare bills, insurance co-pays, time off work and missed payment because of it, car repair and towing costs, and any other quantifiable or recordable consequences of the accident. Keeping a detailed log of the toll the accident took on your life will be instrumental as you seek justice. If you got into a car accident on vacation, chances are this meant incurring even more costs: canceled and rescheduled flights, extended hotel stays, rental car damage, and damage to your possessions are only some of the items you should also make sure are documented.

Find an Attorney You Can Trust

The most important thing you can do to seek justice after a car accident is to work alongside an attorney you can count on. This means finding someone who has a track record of successful outcomes, positive client experiences, and integrity in their practice. In order to find an attorney who you can trust to do right by you and your loved ones, look for someone who won't charge you anything unless they win your case. Look for a professional, easy-to-navigate website that makes it simple to get in touch with your legal team, and always look for reviews and client testimonials. The longer an attorney has been in business with positive client reviews, the better the chances are that they will provide excellent services you can count on.
