What to do after you are injured in an interstate accident

As you are driving along I-74, you notice there is a car that isn't really staying in one lane. It is barely drifting over the lines. You figure the driver is probably just tired. As you approach the vehicle to pass it, the driver suddenly swerves and sideswipes you. Since the crash happened at interstate speeds, it's likely that you are injured, perhaps seriously.

Importance of thorough and consistent medical history

As an injured person, it is extremely import to provide the medical providers with an accurate, thorough and consistent history of accident. The first point of medical treatment after an accident is crucial. The Judges, Attorneys and Insurance Companies pay great weight to the history contained within the first note of medical treatment. A common mistake that people tend to do, is after an injury when they go to the Emergency Room, Prompt Care or to their Primary Care Doctor is they deny trauma. Most people perceive trauma as a catastrophic event. However, medical providers mean any accident big or small when they use the word trauma. If you are injured and are asked if you were involved and/or experienced a recent trauma, make sure to answer yes.
