When A Distracted Driver Causes Serious Injury? What do I do?
Drivers owe a duty to other drivers to avoid needless harm. Whenever a person needlessly endangers another, harm is the likely outcome.
When you’ve been harmed, a personal injury case is the only option. While the law cannot undo the harm, the law can provide compensation for your injuries.
After your accident, you should do the following things:
- Call the police and make a report of the accident
- Take pictures of the accident scene and the vehicles involved in the wreck
- Go to the hospital or urgent care to be checked out same day.
- Follow up with your primary care doctor and explain your injuries
- Follow up with a specialist who will treat your unique condition.
Our society has designed a set of rules of the road to protect our drivers, passengers, and pedestrians. These rules are established for the common good. When someone breaks these rules, your life changes in a heartbeat.
