You need to act fast after a collision caused by another driver to protect your health and your rights. Call 911 right away. The police dispatcher can notify local police or the Pennsylvania State Police depending on the location of your car accident. Eventually, you’ll need to contact your insurance company and an attorney. But if you’re still at the scene of the crash, there are several more steps you should take if you’re healthy enough to do so. Take photos of your accident. Talk to witnesses who saw your crash and get their name and phone number. Exchange information with the other driver. Then, don’t talk about your accident. Anything you say or post on social media could be used to deny your injury claim.
Get medical attention right away, even if you feel fine. Go to the emergency room, an urgent care clinic, or your primary care doctor. Follow your doctor's instructions and save copies of all medical records. And as soon as possible, call a car accident lawyer.
