Brain & Spinal Injuries
Every year here in the United States, 1.5 million people suffer from traumatic brain injuries. Serious brain or spinal injuries—whether their root cause is a slip-and-fall or a car accident—can result in long-term disabilities or even death for victims. Unlike many other types of personal injury, these injuries may not at first be visible to others or even noticeable by the victim themselves, at least immediately. The impact of brain and spinal injuries, however, can be felt hours, days, or months after the initial accident and cause long-term hardship for the victim and those depending on them. You need the assistance of an award-winning California brain injury lawyer. If you or a loved one have been affected by a brain or spinal injury, call us for a free consultation. Our experienced brain injury lawyers in Los Angeles can help you get maximum compensation. More About Brain & Spinal Injuries
Here is what to do if you have been personally injured in an accident.
Whether you have been injured in a car accident or by a dog bite, the first step is to call 9-1-1 for medical assistance. Beyond getting the on-scene medical care you or those with you need, you will want to report the accident—no matter what type of personal injury accident it is—to the police and get a police report written. This can be critical to getting compensation from insurance companies later.
Get Medical Assistance
Never assume that a personal injury is minor until you have been evaluated by a medical professional, either at the scene or immediately after. Make sure you report the nature and extent of your injuries to both the police and medical personnel so that they are included in the accident report. Adrenaline can be a powerful factor that causes many accident victims to underestimate the extent of their injuries at the scene. Make no statements about being uninjured if you have even the slightest suspicion you might be hurt.
Exchange Insurance Information
In a car accident, you will want to exchange information with all parties involved. Use a pen or a phone to quickly takes notes on the following: first and last names, addresses, phone numbers, driver’s license numbers, and the associated company (if a commercial vehicle or truck was involved). You will also want to take down the vehicle information for each vehicle involved in the accident: make, model, year, color, license plate number, and fleet number (if a commercial vehicle or truck was involved). If you are unable to collect this information due to injury, entrust a passenger in your vehicle with doing so. One easy way to take notes that you are less likely to lose is by using your smartphone to take pictures.
Watch Your Words and Actions
An accident of any kind is enough to take even the most stoic person out of their comfort zone. After this traumatic incident, you will need to talk to police and medical personnel, as well as others involved in the accident. Treat anything you say as having the potential to be used against you at a later point. When speaking with the police for their report, stick to the observed facts of the incident and avoid speculation. Do not address other parties angrily or emotionally—even if you believe they are at fault—and avoid any admission of guilt or apologizing.
Take Pictures With Your Phone
Photo evidence can make a major difference down the road. You will want to take pictures of your vehicle—car, truck, motorcycle, or bicycle—your injuries, and the general situation. Also take photos of your location on the street: in many accidents that occur in intersections, injured victims have difficultly remembering the corner it occurred on. If the accident was caused by adverse road conditions or construction, take pictures of that as well.
