If you have been in a car accident, the most important thing to do is get medical attention by calling 911. Once you have been cleared medically, you want to make sure that you or someone else has called the police so that they can investigate the accident. Our Firestone car accident attorneys also recommend that once you have exchanged accident information, including insurance information, you should write down the names of any witnesses who saw the crash or the circumstances leading up to it. Having your own notes of witnesses can be critical if the police report is not as thorough as you may have hoped. We also recommend that you take photographs of the scene, if it is safe to do so, and then take photos of your car and the other vehicles that were involved. An experienced Firestone car accident lawyer can help you do additional investigation such as obtaining video footage, if available, and following up on some of the other clues that may not have been fully investigate by the police.
If you were injured in the accident, it is important that you have your document your injuries and the medical care that you have received or are receiving. We sometimes suggest that our clients keep a diary of their recovery. Our experienced Firestone car accident attorneys can help you document your medical treatment, as well as any lost wages or out of pocket expenses you may incur.
