Car Accidents on Michigan’s Roadways
If you’ve been in a car accident in the Great Lakes State, the most important thing you can do is to take care of your own physical and emotional health. If you’ve been in a car accident, even if you don’t think you’re hurt, call 911 and receive medical attention right away. After that, it’s crucial that you see a qualified doctor about your wounds.
However, the full amount of injuries sustained in vehicle accidents may not become apparent for hours or even days. So, to create a baseline for your injuries, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible.
Sharing information with the other drivers at the site of the accident might also help protect your future legal rights. It is common practice to exchange contact information with the other drivers involved.
Local authorities typically conduct investigations into accidents by assessing the extent of damage, speaking with witnesses, and examining the cars involved. In many of these crashes, authorities ask for the assistance of accident investigators to determine what went wrong.
Taking your own images and films at the site of the accident is, therefore, highly recommended. Photograph the scene of the collision, including the cars and any skid marks, debris, or property damage. Watch the weather, the road conditions, and anything else that can help explain what happened in the crash.
Finally, you should consult a Michigan personal injury attorney who has experience defending clients in cases involving motor vehicle accidents.
