I’ve been hurt in a car accident; what should I do?
First, check to make sure everyone involved in the accident is safe. Then, call the police and request an ambulance if someone was hurt. Don’t leave the scene of the accident. Remain there to exchange car and insurance information, and tell the police your account of the accident. Get the contact information of any witnesses at the scene.
If you were injured because of a car collision, work accident, medical error or any other kind of accident for which someone else was liable, you should consider filing a lawsuit.
