You need to take certain steps right away after your collision to protect your health and your rights. Start by calling 911 and asking the police dispatcher to send an ambulance if you or anyone else is seriously injured. The dispatcher will also send an officer from Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department or Nevada State Police Highway Patrol to your accident, depending on where it occurred. Next, if it’s safe, take pictures of your accident. Get the names and contact information of any witnesses. And even if you feel fine, see a doctor right away. If necessary, go to Summerlin Hospital Medical Center or another nearby hospital. Most importantly, call a lawyer. They can explain your legal options and get right to work on your injury claim or lawsuit.
