If you were injured in a car accident, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention. Even if your injuries seem minor, it's important to get them checked out by a doctor. If you're able to, call 911 and ask for an ambulance. If you're not able to call 911, try to get to a nearby hospital or urgent care center as soon as possible.
Once you're receiving medical treatment, the next thing you should do is contact the Shrewsbury Police Department and file a report. Be sure to get the name and badge number of the officer who takes your report. You'll also need to give a statement about what happened during the accident. If there are any witnesses, be sure to get their names and contact information as well.
After you've received medical treatment at Hackensack Meridian Health Riverview Medical Center or another medical facility or filed a police accident report, you should contact an experienced car accident attorney. An attorney can help you understand your legal rights and options, and can represent you in any negotiations with the other driver's insurance company. If necessary, an attorney can also take your case to court. Car accident attorneys offer free consultations, so be sure to take advantage of this service.
