What Steps To Take if You Are Injured in an Accident and Cannot Work?

As your St. Louis personal injury attorney, we hope you are never in a serious car accident. However, if you are, it’s important to know the steps you should take immediately following the accident.

Step One: Call 911

You might be in a state of shock, but even in a minor accident you should contact the police. You will need to have a police report documenting what happened. Make sure you don’t admit fault.

Step Two: Gather Evidence

One of the biggest mistakes people make is getting rid of the evidence to support what has happened in an accident. Take pictures of the damage as well as any injuries you have. Get the name of the driver of the vehicle and make sure you get insurance information.

Step Three: Contact an Attorney

Only a qualified St. Louis personal injury attorney will know how to help you in case of an accident. Consult with one right away to ensure that you get all of the information you need, in case you need to pursue the case.

A car accident can be devastating, resulting in pain and suffering, mounting medical bills, lost wages, and a long road of problems. However, you are not without help when you need it. As your St. Louis personal injury attorney, we’re committed to fighting for you. Every step of the way.
