Put yourself first if you’re involved in a serious wreck
No one expects to be involved in a motor vehicle wreck. It’s the last thing you think will happen to you, even though you see these kinds of crashes every day. Living near the I-75 corridor, you know that high-speed, dangerous wrecks are possible, but you didn’t expect that you’d be involved in one of them.
When your wreck happened, it was because of another person who wasn’t paying attention to what they were doing. Another wreck had taken place nearby, and they were too busy looking at it to see that traffic had stopped ahead of them. Now, you have serious injuries because of their negligence.
What should you expect after a major car wreck?
After a wreck, you need to take care of yourself before even considering helping anyone else. Call 911, and make sure you have the police and emergency team come to the scene. If your vehicle is in a dangerous location and can be moved to the side of the road, that may be a good idea to prevent further collisions.
It’s smart to write down what you remember about the collision if you can. You will likely forget some details about the collision as time passes, so writing down the details gives you more to discuss with your attorney and may jog your memory later. Once you reach out to your attorney, they will begin putting together a case for you. They’ll work to negotiate a settlement and be prepared to take your case to trial if a fair settlement isn’t offered to you in a timely fashion.
