When you've had
an accident, here are 3 important things to remember:
- Most importantly
cooperate with paramedics if you are injured, TAKE THEIR ADVICE. They
are trained to assess your injuries and can do a better job of it than
you can. You may be in shock or suffering from a concussion and not
realize how hurt you really are.
If the paramedics recommend that you be checked at the hospital or to
go to your family doctor, please do so. Report all symptoms no matter
how minor they may seem as early documentation of injuries may prove
of critical importance to your case.
- If you are well
enough, obtain the names of witnesses and their phone numbers and addresses
as well as any police officers attending.
- Phone our law firm
BEFORE your first appointment with ICBC. We can provide all the necessary
forms for insurance purposes and this way you can avoid making a statement
to ICBC that may hurt your case without you realizing it.
