In the event of a car wreck you should notify your insurance company as soon as possible. You should also obtain photographs of your automobile, if it is damaged, as well as any injuries which are apparent. (If you don’t have a camera readily available disposable cameras are easily available at grocery and drug stores and serve an invaluable purpose in this setting). As soon as practical after the incident have photographs taken of the scene of the incident. When dealing with a car wreck be sure to get photographs of the layout of the highway, controlling speed limit signs, highway markings, traffic control devices, skid marks and gouges in the pavement resulting from the wreck. Prompt and appropriate medical care is probably the most important aspect of dealing with any injuries.

Keep records of the dates of your doctor’s appointments, as well as the address and telephone number of the doctor’s office. This makes obtaining a complete medical file at a later date an easy task. Most medical offices have business cards readily available, you simply need to obtain a card and keep them together for easy reference at a later date.
