Digging for Details
Accidents happen every day—and many cause injury. According to the Indiana State Police, almost 193,000 traffic collisions caused injury or property damage in 2010 alone.
After a serious car accident, first responders include medical and law enforcement personnel. Emergency medical technicians assess and assist injured victims, and law enforcement investigates the scene for causative factors and assignment of fault.
In the same way, an injured party must also protect his or her physical and legal rights by gaining top-notch medical and legal help immediately following an accident. Recovering from injury is essential—and so is gaining fair compensation to pay for losses when the negligent or reckless behavior of someone else caused your accident.
