Once you become a client of the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Glassman, your attorney will advise you on your particular situation. However, there are general rules to keep in mind after experiencing a car accident.
First, make sure you contact law enforcement. Do not handle the matter one on one with the other driver. Calling law enforcement means that documentation will be created to back up your case should you need it.
Second, get evaluated by medical professionals. You may not feel pain or see injuries immediately. This is why it is a good idea to be seen my medical professionals right away. They can determine if you need treatment, even if you don’t realize it.
Third, do what the doctor’s tell you to do. Once you have been seen you may be given a treatment plan. Follow it. This is incredibly significant in later negotiations with insurance.
Fourth, take photos. We all have cell phone with cameras now. Photos are important because you may not remember everything about the scene. Take it all down in your camera and it is one less thing to think about later.
These are just a few of the very common scenarios our clients encounter. Please make sure you go over everything with us when you call at (617) 777-7777, and we can determine if we need more information to start your case.
