What to Do Next in a Personal Injury Case

Call the Law Office of D. Reid Wamble

When you are involved in a personal injury case, you will have many questions. At the Law Office of D. Reid Wamble, I seek to help you avoid the mistakes that individuals make when filing a claim for damages.

My goal is to assist my clients through each step of their cases, which includes helping them understand the steps to take following an injury. If you were involved in an accident that resulted due to another person's carelessness or negligence, it is wise to complete specific actions.

Here are some tips to follow after an injury:

  • Call 911 – If you are able to, contact the local law enforcement to report the accident and any injuries that may have occurred. If you are unable to make the call on your own, ask someone else to complete this step.
  • Collect information – You will need a lot of information to help you prove negligence and seek compensation. This will include taking pictures of the accident scene and injuries, collecting witness information, the other driver's information and car insurance, as well as assuring that law enforcement is involved to complete their report.
  • Seek medical attention – Seeking medical attention can help prove that injuries were sustained as a result of the accident. Even if injuries are not immediately apparent, it is wise to check with a proper medical professional.
  • Seek legal counsel – There are certain rights that you have following an injury, and an attorney can help protect these rights. Speaking with other insurance companies, signing papers, giving statements, or accepting offers could hinder your ability to seek maximum compensation.
