5 stars

What to Do When Someone is Injured in an AccidentCar accidents can happen to anyone at any time. There were 26,459 car accidents in Washington, DC in 2017 alone. Unfortunately, car accidents can result in serious injuries, and even death. Here is what you need to know if you or someone you know is injured in a car accident: 

Call 911

Anytime you have an auto accident, you should call 911 to make sure you get the help you need. Even if you have what appears to be a minor accident, you should still contact the police to file a report. 

Seek Medical Attention

While it is important to contact your insurance company and a personal injury attorney as soon as possible, your first priority must be to seek medical treatment if you or a passenger are injured. Even if you do not feel pain or have visible evidence of injuries, you should still seek medical treatment. Many injuries do not become symptomatic until several days after an accident.

Call an Attorney

If you are injured in an auto accident, you may be eligible for compensation for your injuries, ongoing medical care, lost wages, and damage to your vehicle. If you or a loved one have been injured, contact us today for more information or to schedule a consultation.
