The most important and the first thing that you need to do after an auto accident is to seek medical attention. You cannot say for yourself if you are hurt or not because some injuries do not manifest right away. Medical practitioners have the duty to record their findings or observations about your condition. Their opinion matters, which is why their expression of a potential injury following the accident is good evidence to support your claim. The next thing you consider if you have been hurt from an auto accident is do you need an attorney?
An auto accident causes various types of injuries. Some may be temporary, some are life changing, and some require surgery or rehabilitation. Aside from injuries, you may also lose some income by not being able to work. You may have lost time to go on a trip, or have lost time to study. You lose opportunities by not being able to function properly during your period of recovery. An auto accident may also result in property damage. Finally, you may suffer some psychological or emotional trauma from the accident that does not only affect you, but your relationships with your family and friends.
The mental and financial distress of dealing with the accident is already overwhelming to most, so you will need the help of an auto accident attorney to deal with the claims process and to be able to receive what you are owed.
