If you live somewhere in the United States and you’ve suffered a personal injury, you might have no idea what to do. The very first thing is to ensure that you’re safe and that you receive the medical attention that you need. Depending on the severity of your injuries, you may need to be transported to the hospital by ambulance, and at that time, this is your priority. However, once your injuries have been treated and stabilized, here’s what you need to do next:
Contact the Police
If you or someone else has called 911, an ambulance will likely be sent along with the police. Even if you can answer any questions on the scene, you may want to refrain from doing so. You might be better off waiting to find legal counsel before you answer any of their questions. However, the police will need to complete a basic report, so if you can, you will be required to answer some basic questions. Be careful not to make it appear as if the accident was your fault, even if you believe it might be. Only an experienced personal injury attorney can definitively make such a determination.
Contact a Personal Injury Attorney
While there’s no guarantee that you’ll have a case if you are injured on the grounds of someone’s home or business property, it’s imperative that you contact a personal injury lawyer right away. The sooner your contact an attorney, the fresher any evidence will be, and the easier it will be for possible witnesses to remember what they may have seen during your accident.
Some additional things to do after a personal injury:
- Try to collect evidence, if possible
- Refrain from talking to bystanders or anyone else besides the police or an attorney about what happened
