Prepare for the Unexpected
No one can predict when a personal injury can occur. One minute you are enjoying a nice coffee inside a Starbucks, and then next, a negligent driver crashes through the window and injures you. While you can’t ever know when these things can happen, it is important that you have a procedure in place to follow after it does happen. If a negligent driver injures you, take the following steps:
- Get immediate medical attention
- Gather contact information of those who witnessed the accident
- Take pictures of the scene if you can
- Call an experienced personal injury attorney
