10 Steps to Take when Injured in an Accident

Posted on Thursday, February 11th, 2016 at 4:04 pm    

At Mazin & Associates, PC, we highly recommend that you follow these 10 steps.

  1. Contact the Police and advise them of all accident related details.
  2. Write down the names and contact information of everyone involved in the accident and any witnesses; if you are involved in a motor vehicle accident, obtain the insurance information as well as the driver’s licence and licence plate numbers of all other involved parties.
  3. See your family doctor and advise them of your injuries.
  4. Notify your Accident Benefits Insurance Provider of your involvement in a motor vehicle accident as soon as possible.
  5. If you are unable to work or go to school, notify your employer or school and advise them of the reason for your absence.
  6. Keep track of the names of all health professionals that you see in relation to your injuries from the accident – be sure to also keep track of the dates and times of your visits.
  7. Ensure that caregivers whether professionals, friends or family members, record the time that they spend caring for you and the activities that they help you with.
  8. Investigate whether you are eligible for treatment coverage or disability pay under any other insurance policies – check with your employer, your school and/or private plan providers.
  9. Keep the original receipts and invoices of all of your out-of pocket expenses related to your accident, including payment for caregiving, medication, assistive devices, etc.
  10. Talk to a car accident lawyer about your legal rights.
