When a motorist is involved in an accident, there are a number of steps that should be taken immediately after the accident. These steps involve both actions to safeguard one’s health as well as legal steps. If a person has been injured due to the fault of another person or party, that injured person may have the ability to collect accident injury compensation. If the injured person dies from accident injuries, relevant parties may be able to collect compensation through the filing of a wrongful death lawsuit.

Steps to take after an accident are further discussed on the “Steps To Take After An Auto Accident” page. As mentioned on that page, if the accident has resulted in an injury, a personal injury lawyer should be consulted as soon as possible.

The personal injury lawyer can indicate whether a personal injury lawsuit should be filed in order to get accident injury compensation. Reasons for filing a personal injury lawsuit are further discussed on the “Reasons For Filing A Personal Injury Lawsuit After An Accident” page. As discussed on that page, while there are many potential reasons as to why one might want to file a lawsuit, one of the primary reasons is to get compensation for direct and indirect costs stemming from the medical care needed to treat the injuries.
