What You Should Do After an Accident
Representing the Injured in Nevada
By taking a few simple steps after your accident, you may be able to increase your chances of having successful case. The personal injury lawyers at Richard Harris Law Firm recommend that all of our clients:
- Collect Contact Information
Gather the names, addresses, and phone numbers of the other parties involved, or any witnesses of the accident. Have these contacts handy so you can share them with your personal injury lawyer and case manager.
If you didn't collect the contact information of anyone at the scene, you can find this information in the police report. To pick up a copy of the police report, visit your local police station or contact the police station where your accident occurred.
- Seek Medical Care
Sometimes injuries take time to present themselves, so even if you don't think you're hurt, we recommend you visit a doctor after your accident.
Take notes about how you feel after the accident, what the doctor says, and your recovery process. Detailed information about your condition, medical treatment, and work status can be helpful when your attorney and case manager are preparing your case.
- Don't Sign Anything
Don't sign anything without talking to our Nevada personal injury lawyers first. Once you have secured representation from an attorney at our firm, we will communicate directly with the insurance company for you. If your insurance company or the insurance company of the other party contacts you, call us so we can make sure your rights to compensation are protected.
