What is done immediately following an accident can have a tremendous impact on your case. Failing to take the correct measures can be just as devastating to your case as doing the wrong thing.
Apart from failing to contact a qualified personal injury attorney as soon as possible, one of the worst things you can do is neglecting to take proper documentation of your accident. This is especially true if police officers are not at the scene to file an official report.
