What to do After an Accident

Have you or a loved one been hurt due to someone else's negligence or wrong doing? You may be feeling stressed and overwhelmed. You may be in pain and unable to work or care for yourself and family. Most people do not know where to turn or who to talk to regarding questions they may have pertaining to their injuries. The best thing you could do immediately following an accident is to seek medical attention. Even though some injuries may not be clearly visible or injuries may not be noticeable, it does not mean that they are not there. Tight muscles may prevent something such as painful back and neck injuries from developing symptoms for days, weeks or even months. By seeking medical attention immediately after an accident, you are allowing a doctor to thoroughly exam and diagnose any possible injuries that you may have received.
