Post-Accident Do’s & Don’ts

If you’ve been hurt in an accident such as a car accident, truck accident, or premises liability incident, it is important that you know what to do. There are steps to take after an accident that will allow you to optimally protect your legal rights and proceed with intelligence, maintaining as much control as possible. Observe these post-accident “do’s and don’ts” so you can protect your rights after an injury.

After an accident:

  • DON’T wait before getting the medical help you need — Your first priority should be your health and safety. Make sure that you have access to quality healthcare after an accident.

  • DO save the names and contact information of witnesses — Were there eyewitnesses to your accident? Be sure to obtain their names and contact information. This includes other drivers involved in a car, motorcycle, pedestrian, or truck accident.

  • DON’T make statements of blame — Even if you feel that you were at fault in the accident, refrain from making any statements accepting or attributing blame. No matter now confident you feel, there may be information you don’t have. Making a statement of guilt, however, could hurt your case later on.

  • DO contact a lawyer as soon as possible — The sooner you get in touch with a Riverside personal injury lawyer, the better your chances of a successful outcome will be.
