You need to act fast after a collision caused by another driver to protect your health and your rights. Call 911 right away. The dispatcher will notify local police or the Tennessee Highway Patrol depending on the location of your accident. If you’re still at the scene of your crash, stay there until the police arrive. It’s against the law to leave the scene of a serious car accident. If you can safely do so, take photos of your accident and get the names and phone numbers of any witnesses. Exchange information with the other driver, but don’t say anything else about your collision. Your comments could be used as evidence to deny your car accident injury claim. And as soon as possible, see a doctor and call a lawyer. That way, you can find out more about the severity of your injuries and know your legal rights.
