When you are involved in an auto accident, there are feelings of shock, anger, and anxiety that immediately follow. What may not be immediately apparent is the existence of an injury caused by the collision. It is especially true when dealing with a soft tissue injury, since there are no “visible” injuries, that the onset of pain may not come up until days after an accident. That is why it is so important to seek immediate treatment after an auto accident. If you cannot drive your car from the scene of the accident, it is wise to have an EMS service transport you to the nearest hospital. This will ensure that if any issues will arise, you can get started with the treatment you will need right away.
If you have been involved in an auto accident, your first step is to get the medical attention you need. Your next step should be to obtain a copy of the accident report and contact a knowledgeable personal injury attorney like Joseph Lariscy to discuss your case.
