First and foremost, get medical attention. If you aren't taken to the hospital and you're able to take pictures at the scene, take pictures of the license plate of the car that ran into you, the damage to the other car, pictures of the driver, pictures of any witnesses, etc. Be sure and get the names of any witnesses and how to contact them. A lot of people believe the police are going to get all the witnesses — they don't. Let me just tell you they don't do it.
One of the most important things that you need to do when you have a car wreck is when you get medical treatment, give them your health insurance. The other person's insurance isn't going to pay for your healthcare, not at this point in time, but if you have a significant injury you absolutely want to hire a lawyer — the sooner, the better because there are a lot of things that happen early on and the insurance company is involved almost immediately. They know what they're doing, they do this every day. You don't, you're not in a wreck every day, and you’ll need some help and need some guidance.
