Car Accident | Damages
Being involved in a car accident can result in death, serious bodily and emotional injuries as well a tremendous financial loss. Injuries may cause you to miss work and incur excessive medical expenses. Do not let a car accident ruin your life.
Car Accident | Five Things To Do
If you are in a car accident, it is important that you remain calm and do the following five things:
- Call the Police;
- Receive Immediate Medical Attention;
- Photograph the Damage to your Vehicle;
- Follow-up with your Medical Care; and
- Call an Experienced and Well Respected San Diego Car Accident Lawyer.
Car Accident | Call the Police
If you are capable of calling the police after you have been involved in a car accident, do so. The phone call to the police will be documented and it is an important record that the collision occurred even if the police do not proceed with a full traffic collision report.
A full traffic collision report will have the name, drivers’ license, registration and automobile insurance information of the at-fault driver and their vehicle. It will have the names and telephone numbers of any witness to the crash and it will have a preliminary cause of the collision.
If the police do not proceed with a full traffic collision report, it is important that you obtain the name, license plate and insurance information of the driver and vehicle that struck you. You should also gather any witness information that you are able to obtain.
Car Accident | Photograph your Car Damage
Many collisions will render a vehicle incapacitated and not driveable. In other collisions, the car is able to be driven home. In either case, it is important to photograph the damage to your car for evidence preservation and future expert accident reconstruction use.
Car Accident | Injury
Some car accident injuries are severe and even life threatening resulting in death. Others are slow to manifest. It is important to obtain, seek and continue with your medical treatment so your prognosis is detailed and all potential injury diagnoses are identified or disqualified.
Car Accident | Medical Care
In many instances, drivers and or passengers who have been involved in an automobile collision are rushed by ambulance to a hospital. It is important not to deny this emergency medical care so that you may receive immediate attention for your injuries. At the hospital you will receive further testing and or undergo imaging that will identify or eliminate potential injury diagnoses.
If you are not transported by emergency ambulatory care to a hospital after a collision it is still very important that you seek you own immediate medical care through your local emergency room, urgent care, clinic or primary care physician so that you receive a complete medical prognosis and injury diagnoses.
Car Accident | Follow-up Medical Care
After your initial medical care it is extremely important that all victims who have been injured as a result of an auto collision, follow-up with their medical care. This means that you should not miss any appointments with your primary care physician, specialist, and or therapist. Further, it is important to continue with your medical attention to ensure that thorough documentation of your injuries is kept by your medical providers.
