What to Do Following a Car Accident:
Be Careful Who You Talk To
Do not talk to anyone about the details of your accident except for your doctors and attorneys. Always require identification so that you know who is talking with you. Be careful of insurance companies attempting to gain as much information as possible before you hire an attorney.
Follow Your Doctors’ Advice
Return to each of your doctors as is necessary, and keep them informed of all physical and emotional complaints. It is most important to keep your doctors informed of all problems and to get yourself healed. Make sure to keep us informed of any doctors or treating personnel that you see.

Obtain and keep duplicate copies of any bills relating to medical expenses, including, but not limited to: treatment, x-rays, medications, braces, etc.
Additional expenses you incur as a result of your injuries can often be included in the case. Keep track of any additional expenses you sustain as a result of your being injured, including receipts.
Never plead guilty to any traffic offenses without first consulting an attorney. Pleading guilty to a traffic offense can adversely affect your personal injury claim.
