There are many steps that should be taken following a collision to ensure your legal rights are protected, but this can vary depending on the circumstances.
An injured person should seek out immediate and ongoing medical care until they are completely better. If someone has died, a wrongful death claim may be pursued by surviving family members against those responsible and or their insurance company.
