#1: Stay Out of Harm’s Way

After a car accident, those involved should try their best to get out of the roadway as well as away from any vehicle that is smoking or on fire. While moving an injured person is inadvisable, there are some instances when a person needs to be moved for their safety.

#2: Exchange Information and Keep Records

Although police should create their own report if there are any injuries in an accident, motorists should do their best to keep their own records. This can include exchanging information between the parties involved and taking photo evidence of the accident.

#3: Contact a Lawyer

It is no secret that healthcare can prove costly. If a motorist is injured in an accident that was someone else’s fault, there may be compensation available for the expenses related to that accident. A qualified Jacksonville injury lawyer can help with this aspect of your case.
