The most important thing you can do after an accident is follow the advice of your doctors. That means going to all medical appointments and reporting all symptoms. Make sure your doctors are notified that you were injured in a car accident so they can bill their services to the proper insurance company. Remember to fill out a no-fault application within 30 days of the accident so the proper insurance company pays for the medical bills. Take pictures of your injuries so they are documented for the future. If possible, have someone take pictures of the automobile you were in, so that the damage to the vehicle can be shown. If there are witnesses, provide the names of the witnesses to your car accident lawyer so they can be contacted about what they saw.
