What to Do After a Minor Car Accident?

Helping Injured People Get Results


Product Liability


Medical Malpractice


Product Liability

Never assume that a car accident is too minor for you to do anything about it. What may seem like nothing at the time could still result in high costs and a major headache. You should still seek medical and legal help, even if you think that the accident was not serious.

See a Doctor

It is always a good idea to get checked out medically after any car accident. You may think that you are alright, but some injuries may take some time to show symptoms. In the meantime, your injury can grow worse when left untreated. It is better to take the time to make sure that you are OK than to learn of a brain or back injury only after you notice symptoms. By that point, you may have missed valuable treatment time, and the effects can be permanent. Worse comes to worse, you have invested a few hours to find out that you are perfectly fine.

Call a Lawyer

You also need legal help after a car accident. Even if an accident seems minor, it could still result in high medical bills and property damage. Take the time to have a free initial consultation with a lawyer to see if you have a legal case. If you do not, it will cost you nothing. However, being unrepresented could pose problems, especially if you learn later on that you have been injured. Let the lawyer tell you that the accident is too minor to do anything about. This is not a call to make on your own.
