Major car accidents can cause traumatic damages to an individual, but so can minor car accidents. It simply is about how quickly the car was moving when impact was made. Sometimes even fender benders can cause terrible neck pains and back injuries. Regardless of the situation, if you have been involved in a car accident, someone is almost always at fault. If you can do so without injuring yourself or others, there are a few things you should do immediately following an accident. First, contact emergency services for medical help and evaluations. Gather all insurance information, take pictures and gather witness names and statements.
If you feel even remotely "shaken up" or have any sort of aches or pains after the accident, seek medical attention immediately. Record all medical statements, estimates for repairs and out of pocket expenses that are needed to help in your recovery as these may help you build a case. If you choose to file a claim with an insurance company, make sure you do so quickly following an accident.
