After a car accident, you may think that you were not seriously injured. However, you should still see a medical professional as soon as you can. This can help you determine the extent of your condition. Any gap in treatment could damage a potential personal injury claim. Depending on how long you wait to see a doctor, you may be unable to pursue a claim entirely. You need to be sure you seek medical treatment so you can establish a paper trail connecting your injuries to the accident. This can prove to be some of the strongest evidence in a future injury claim. 

If the police are called to the scene of your accident, they will make an official report. This report will typically assign blame to one of the drivers at the scene. This is determined by statements from witnesses and those involved. You should get the contact information of any witnesses who saw the accident. What they say can potentially be used to back up your claim for compensation.
