The things you do in the moments, days, and weeks after a traffic accident could potentially affect your ability to pursue compensation from the at-fault party. First, collect photo and video evidence at the scene of the crash if possible. Next, make sure you and your passengers are all right, then exchange contact information with the other driver or drivers involved. Contact emergency responders so that police can make a report of the incident and paramedics can address any immediate injuries. Be sure to seek medical attention if you’re not transported from the scene, as you could be suffering from injuries you aren’t yet aware of. Finally, contact a San Diego car accident lawyer from HHJ Trial Attorneys to find out if your case is eligible for compensation.
