Know your rights for seeking compensation after a car crash

Driving during the winter months in New England can be quite challenging. As we discussed last week, there are some steps to take to keep yourself safe while driving on snow and ice. Of course, this doesn't mean that you will be able to stop all accidents from occurring.

One factor that could impact whether a driver is able to avoid hitting you is the condition they are in behind the wheel. Drivers who have been drinking and those who are distracted shouldn't be driving on wintry roads because of the challenges that occur when the roads are slick.

The first thing on which you should focus when you are involved in an accident is seeking help. Contact emergency services to get a police officer and ambulance to the scene, especially if anyone is injured.

Even if you don't think that you are seriously injured, it is still a good idea to seek medical care after a car accident. We know that you might be reluctant to go to the doctor, but failing to seek treatment could come back to haunt you later.

Getting medical care can ensure that you will recover as much as is possible after your accident. Additionally, if you are seeking compensation, it ties your injuries directly to your car accident.

If you are struck by another vehicle during inclement weather conditions this winter, you might decide to pursue financial compensation. When you are still on the scene of the accident — and if you are able — you should gather as much information as you can so that your personal injury attorney can use it when filing your claim for compensation.
