What to Do After an Accident

Retain a Personal Injury Attorney in Livingston County, New York

If you have been injured in an accident due to the negligence of another, or if you are researching what to do in the case that this occurs, then this page may provide you with some vital information and advice regarding this type of situation. Suffering injuries in an accident due to the negligent acts of another can cause a great deal of emotional, physical, and financial hardship, so for these and other reasons, it is vital that you seek legal assistance to help you pursue the compensatory damages that you need.

There are two major steps that you must take in the event that you are involved in an accident with another vehicle:

  • You need to see a doctor as soon as possible. Even if you believe that you were not injured in the accident, the body can sometimes be in shock and not experience pain or symptoms until days or weeks after an accident. Visiting a doctor will also provide you with the means to obtain official records documenting the severity of your injuries, which can be used in your case at a later time.
  • You need to contact a skilled and highly experienced Livingston County personal injury attorney from our firm immediately. It is important to know that you may be able to collect compensation for the injuries or damages you have sustained; however, there is a statute of limitations that applies to these situations, and you need representation to help you pursue these rights.
