Pain Is More Than Physical After A Car Accident

A truck or car accident hurts more than you, the victim. Beyond broken bones and painful surgeries, vehicular accidents can leave you and your family struggling with lingering emotional trauma, lost wages and financial stresses. You worry about how you will make ends meet while trying to focus on recovering from the severe physical damage.

At Kujawski Marcus, LLC, our caring attorneys are here to help and ease the long journey ahead.

Steps To Take After A Wreck

After getting injured in a car crash, it is easy to feel overwhelmed by confusion and shock, even when injuries are minor. Knowing what to do can help you control the damage and put you in a position to get the best possible outcome. If you have serious injuries, seek immediate medical assistance. Nothing is more important than your health. If you do not need emergency treatment, take the following steps:

• Check on all passengers
• File a police report
• Exchange contact and insurance information
• Talk to witnesses at the scene
• Take pictures of vehicular damage
• Keep track of all medical treatment

You should also notify your insurance company of the accident and obtain a property damage valuation. Be wary, however, of any early settlement offers. Never settle a claim until you know you will receive full compensation for all injuries.
