Question:
What steps should I take after a car accident injury?

Answer:
When I’m contacted by clients who have just had an accident and are in their car in a state of shock, I say, “Listen, if you’re injured and you know you’re injured, it’s best to wait in the vehicle for help to get there so that you can get out of the vehicle and get the emergency help that you need. If you’re injured, but you can safely drive your vehicle and take it off the road safely, then please do so. Obviously, remain at the scene. Wait for law enforcement to arrive.”

It’s best not to have any conversations with any people there at the scene. Cooperate 100% with law enforcement. If you’re feeling that you need to get medical treatment and attention and an ambulance is there and they’re recommending that you go to the hospital, please take that advice. Do not try to go it alone. They’re there for you. They’re advising you of what your best options are for that medical care and treatment.

It’s best to document the scene, if you can, by taking pictures of the damages to the vehicles there at the scene. If there’s a witness there that is waiting for law enforcement to arrive and they don’t want to wait any longer, get a picture of their driver’s license so that they can go on their way and you can give that information to a law enforcement officer. Cooperate 100% with the officers that investigate the accident. Make sure you get prompt medical attention.
