• Seek Medical Attention: If you sustain injuries following the accident, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible. Seeking medical attention is important as some life-threatening injuries won't be apparent right away.
• Gather evidence: The next step is to gather evidence that can be used to support your claim, such as police reports, photos, medical reports, and witness statements.
