My name is Jim Desmond, and as an injury attorney I help people who are injured in car, truck and motorcycle accidents throughout Kentucky and Southern Indiana. It is important to be represented by an experienced accident and injury lawyer who will hold those who hurt you financially accountable. What should you do immediately after an accident?
No one leaves their home expecting to be involved in an accident. What should you do immediately afterward if you are able? Take pictures of the cars, where they are located and the license plate of the car who caused the accident. Take photos of any injuries you may have. A picture is worth a thousand words. Most importantly, even if you don't believe you are injured enough to go to a hospital, see your family doctor within 24 hours of the accident. Many injuries take weeks or even months to fully develop. If you do not see a doctor immediately after the accident you may not be able to recover for injuries that develop in the next few weeks.
