Vancouver Injury Lawyers Post Top 10 Things to Do After a Car Accident

Vancouver Injury Lawyers Outline the Correct Procedure to Document the Cause of an Accident in a New Web Article

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - December 16, 2015) - The personal injury lawyers at the Jiwa Law Corporation understand that being involved in an accident is a nerve shattering experience. In the moments that follow, as you fumble for insurance papers, it can be difficult to know what to do. To help anyone involved in a vehicle crash, the Jiwa team has released an online article documenting the 10 steps to take after an accident. For more information, go to: http://www.jiwalawcorp.com/blog/top-10-things-to-do-after-a-car-accident-in-vancouver-b-c/.

The blog begins by providing a little perspective. Although being involved in an accident can be embarrassing and flustering, particularly if you end up blocking traffic, the first priority must be the safety of the driver and passengers. "…if anyone in your car seems to be in need of emergency medical attention, then call 911 before you do anything else. The rest can wait."

Other tips include taking lots of pictures, getting video or written statements from third party witnesses, and making sure that if you need to consult with a doctor his or her advice is followed diligently.

The article also emphasizes that while any vehicle accident must be quickly reported to ICBC using their dial-a-claim system, it is important to consult with an injury lawyer before providing a written statement, particularly if you need help. Acting without legal advice can limit your options, so it's important to work with someone who can help you understand your rights and obligations.

Although being involved in car accident is never simple, knowing the correct steps to take can contribute to a smooth resolution. That means you'll be able to focus on the important things, like getting better so you can return to your daily routine.
