Being involved in motor vehicle crashes are never anticipated, and victims are often unsure of what to do immediately afterward. When car accidents are caused by the negligence of others, injured victims in Ontario typically have the choice to pursue financial relief. However, the steps they take -- or fail to take -- in the aftermath of the crash may jeopardize their chances of a successful personal injury claim.

Notify the police if there are injuries or if other driver/s appear to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Remain at the scene. Provide a statement to police and keep a copy. Taking cell phone photos of the scene and the vehicle damage might prove beneficial at a later stage. However, medical treatment is the primary concern -- even if there is no apparent concern, some injuries only become evident after hours or even days.

Retaining all documents related to medical treatment is essential because it will be required by the court when claims are adjudicated. The next step for the injured victim to take is to inform his or her auto insurer and to complete the necessary forms for prompt submission -- there may be time limits to meet. The insurance provider  of the driver considered at fault may try to arrange a quick settlement, but it might not be in the best interests of the injured party to sign any deals just yet.

It is essential to understand that the other party's insurer will not necessarily have the best interests of the injured victim at heart. Instead, seeking the support and guidance of an Ontario personal injury lawyer who is experienced in all matters related to car accidents is typically a smart move. An attorney can help gather the information that is typically critical to pursue recovery of damages. Furthermore, a lawyer can navigate the legal proceedings and work toward achieving full and fair compensation for an injured victim.
