Steps for Auto Accident Lawsuits
As soon as a person is involved in a car wreck, or some other motor vehicle accident (i.e. motorcycle, boat, scooter, truck, bus, van, etc.) it is vital to request immediate medical attention; preferably at the scene of the accident. This is the most important step out of all the recommended proceedings in a motor vehicle accident and injury lawsuit. A person’s life, health, and well-being are the most important priority. After that, it is important to have medical records showing legal documentation expressing the onset injuries and damages of a victim. These records, combined with many others, are used as evidence in a court of law.
Once medical attention is received and a victim is stabilized, it is important to then file a police report. This is usually done at the scene of the accident because on-duty officers usually report to the scene of a car accident. These records are also used as evidence to support a victim’s case and claim. When a person is too incapacitated, or unconscious, it is okay for an immediate family member to file to report initially; and then later, when the victim is conscience or stable, they can add their accounts of the accident as well.
Once the medical and police reports are documented and recorded, and the injured victim is in good care, it is time to contact an Indianapolis Personal Injury Law Firm for professional legal counsel and to get your claim started. It is important to choose a reputable and licensed attorney that concentrates on motor vehicle accidents, and retains extensive litigation and trial experience.
