The Process – What You Need to Do as the Victim in a Car Accident

Immediately following the car accident, it is important to receive medical attention from a licensed physician. Your physician will be able to:

  • Help determine if you have an “emergency medical condition.” This can increase the benefits you can collect under PIP coverage and will be important for your attorney to know when evaluating your options.
  • Record and document any visible scratches, lacerations, or bruising.
  • Evaluate you for any internal damage that may not be readily apparent to non-medical professionals.
  • Provide information on and evidence of injuries that may manifest at some point in the future.

The information documented in this evaluation can be crucial to the success of your case and the amount of compensation could recover. Following this initial evaluation, it is important that you do not discuss the accident or your injury with anyone other than your physician and attorney. Anything you say can be used against you during future negotiations and litigation. Your attorney will handle all discussions concerning the case on your behalf.
