The steps you take after a car accident in Baltimore can have a significant impact on your ability to file an accident injury lawsuit in the future. Watch this video to prepare yourself to act if an accident happens to you.

In the immediate aftermath of the car accident, the first priority is getting emergency medical attention if necessary. Call the police to the scene of the accident, and document the location, make and model of other vehicles, and road conditions, using photos if possible. Exchange information with the other driver, but don't discuss the details of the collision. Go the hospital or your doctor for an exam after the accident, even if you don't think you're injured. Some common car accident injuries, like whiplash, don't cause symptoms right away, so it's important to see a doctor for diagnosis and to document the injuries as soon as possible.
