What Should You Do if You Are Seriously Injured?


Assisting with a variety of injuries resulting from car accidents

An estimated 1.7 million people suffer traumatic brain injury (TBI) in the United States every year. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), TBIs are a contributing factor in almost a third of all injury-related deaths. And many of those injuries and deaths are the result of automobile accidents.

Our goal in serving you is to provide you with personal attention and experienced guidance. The team of responsive and caring professionals at Brown, Novick & McKinley Attorneys at Law has more than 80 years of combined experience. We realize that figuring out what to do after a car accident can be confusing, especially if you have been seriously injured. Our New Jersey brain injury attorneys help victims recover compensation every day. And we want to help you.

What to do after suffering injury in an accident

Panic. Shock. Confusion. These are some of the things people often experience in auto accidents. However, what you do in the moments following a car accident are of the utmost importance.

Below are the steps you should take after an auto accident:

  • Call 911. Your first concern should be contacting emergency services. You must look out for your welfare and the welfare of your passengers. Do not attempt to assess your own injuries — even conditions that appear to be minor can worsen over time.
  • See a doctor. Next, you should visit a doctor to have the full extent of your injuries diagnosed. A brain injury attorney in New Jersey can explain to you that this is important not only for your health, but also for your legal case.
  • Consult an attorney. You should have a lawyer review your case. They can point out any weaknesses or strengths in your case and determine if you have enough evidence to file a lawsuit.
  • Follow your doctor’s orders. Victims who suffer catastrophic injuries require extensive therapy, treatment and medication. Again, it is essential to your health and your case that you listen to your doctor.
  • Keep a journal. It is a good idea to keep a journal documenting your recovery. You should note any special occasions or work days you miss because of your injury. Also write down if your condition improves or gets worse.
