The steps you take after your Minneapolis car crash matter. So make sure you take your collision seriously right from the start. First, call 911. This will create an official record of your car crash. The police dispatchers will then notify the Minneapolis Police Department or the Minnesota State Police depending on where your accident took place. If you or anyone else was seriously injured, ask the dispatcher to send an ambulance. They can take you to Abbott Northwestern Hospital or another nearby medical facility if necessary. If you are healthy enough to do so, take photographs of your accident. The more pictures, the better. If someone saw your collision, get the witness’ name and phone number. You should also exchange information with the other driver. Then, call a lawyer. A Minneapolis attorney can answer your questions, explain your options and get right to work on your injury claim or lawsuit.
