Ten important steps to take when injured

If you or someone you know has suffered a serious personal injury, some very important steps need to be taken within the first few days:

  • Make sure the police have all of the information they need about the accident.
  • Record the names and addresses of involved parties and witnesses to the accident.
  • Keep your family doctor informed of your injury.
  • Notify your insurance company as soon as possible of your car accident.
  • Notify your employer or school.
  • Record the names and contact information of your healthcare professionals.
  • Record insurance information.
  • Keep receipts for all related expenses. Family members should also record dates and time spent caring for the injured person.
  • Check for other insurance coverage (i.e. through your work, school, or private plans).
  • Contact the PIA and know your rights.
