What Happens After An Accident?
No one wants to think about what they would do in the event of a car accident, but it could happen when you’re least expecting it. We've broken down the three most important steps to help make the process as easy as possible.
After you've assessed that everyone involved is okay and contacted your local authorities, make sure you document the details of your accident. More than just taking pictures of the vehicles involved, make a note of how you feel or where you might be experiencing pain so that your doctor has a better idea what your body might have experienced in the accident.
CAll Your Doctor
Make an appointment with your Chiropractor as quickly as possible. Underlying pain may not be immediately apparent, and the longer you go without treatment, the more extensive the damage to your body might become. DMV.org even recommends having a family member or friend take photos of any injuries you may have suffered in case your doctor or insurance company need them.
Consider an attorney
Depending on the extent of damage to your vehicle and any injuries you may have incurred, you may want to consider hiring an attorney to help maximize your recovery and minimize losses. Your doctor may be able to recommend local representation to help get you through your accident as quickly and efficently as possible.
