What Should I Do If I’m Injured in an Accident?

When you’re injured, knowing what to do is crucial. Here’s what you need to focus on:

  1. Safety First: If you can, move to a safe location away from traffic and hazards. Assess yourself and others for injuries. Call emergency services if needed.
  2. Don’t Admit Fault. Admitting fault could impact the success or your case. In the stress of the moment you may not know all of the facts yet. Wait to speak to an attorney.
  3. Document Everything: Exchange information with other drivers, take photos of the scene, and get witness contact details. A police report is also important. Need more guidance? See our Car Accident Guide: What to Do After a Car Accident: https://www.gjel.com/car-accident-lawyers/what-to-do-after-a-car-accident
  4. Protect Yourself: Don’t apologize or admit fault, even casually. Seek medical attention, even if you feel fine – some injuries take time to show up.
  5. Call an Experienced Attorney: GJEL Accident Attorneys specialize in car accident cases. We’ll fight for your compensation and handle the legal complexities. Contact us today for a free consultation.
