  • Assess the situation and document any and all evidence available to you at the scene.  For instance, take pictures, obtain the responsible driver’s insurance information and record any witness information from those that may have valuable information regarding the incident.
  • See a doctor as soon as possible so that he or she can fully assess your injuries to keep potentially catastrophic injuries from going undetected or your condition from getting worse.
