Seek medical attention for your injuries as soon as possible. Even if you are concerned about the expense, it is important that you see a doctor. Injuries that result from an accident may not appear for days or weeks after the accident and leaving them untreated will lead to more pain and discomfort in the long run. If you do not seek medical treatment after an accident, insurance companies may use that as proof that your injuries were not serious.
Write down what you can about the accident while it is fresh in your mind. You may find it difficult, but documenting the accident is an important part of building a case for your claim. If you are acting as an advocate for a child or elderly relative, have them tell you everything that they can remember about the accident and write it down for them.
Keep a record of all doctor visits, medications, and symptoms associated with your injuries. Any documentation you receive about medical treatment or property damage repairs should also be kept and provided to your attorney.
Do not make statements to any insurance company representative, opposing attorney, or investigators other than the police without talking to you own attorney first. If you do talk to the police, try to be as factual as possible about the accident rather than taking or assigning blame.
