What to Do After an Accident
Whether you have been injured in a car accident or as a result of a defective product, the most important thing to do after an accident is to seek medical attention. Calling 911 can ensure that you will be promptly evaluated and safely transported to the hospital via ambulance. Police who respond to the scene can file a report, including a crash report if it was a motor vehicle accident, which can later be used as evidence on your behalf.
Collecting as much information and documentation as possible about the events that caused your injury is crucial. Our attorneys can manage the investigation process as soon as you hire us. We know how to gather necessary information from witnesses, medical records, and crash reports, if applicable. We also manage communication with insurance companies so you do not have to worry about saying anything that can be used against you.
For compassionate and loyal advocacy in your injury case, call our Carmel personal injury attorneys at (317) 526-4467. You can trust us to relieve you of your burdens during a painful and dark time.
