Steps To Take After A Serious Injury

  • Call the police to report the accident – The police will document your injuries. It is important to file a police report to preserve your rights. You should also call your insurance company to report the accident. This is the best way to protect your rights and your right to compensation.
  • Stay at the scene of the accident – Make sure to gather the necessary information about the accident, including the name and address of the other driver and any witnesses.
