You should seek professional medical assistance even if you don’t think your injuries are serious, or even if you don’t think you’re injured. This needs to be your top priority. Some serious injuries, like traumatic brain injury, aren’t immediately apparent right after an accident. So it’s important to seek medical attention immediately after any accident to get a thorough medical evaluation and find out whether the accident caused any injuries.
If you contacted the authorities to receive medical attention, then you likely informed them of what happened. However, if you did not call authorities to get medical assistance, you’ll then need to contact them. By contacting authorities, they can help you begin the process of determining fault and documentation.
Next, you’ll need to start gathering details and documenting the accident to help build your case. You may have done this already with the authorities, but it doesn’t hurt to gather more information. Once you have received medical attention, spoken with authorities, and documented as much as possible, it’s time to consult with a Richmond personal injury lawyer.
