Steps To Take After A Car Accident
The most important thing you can do after an accident is obtain medical care and follow your doctor's treatment plan. This is important for two reasons: to get better and to document your injuries for the insurance company.
Secondly, if you are contacted by the insurance company of the other driver, you should not sign anything or give a recorded statement. Anything you sign could result in the loss of important rights. Anything you say could be used against you to damage your case.
