We certainly don’t want to discourage you from contacting a Warrenton motorcycle accident attorney if you’ve been hurt in a crash. However, we also don’t believe that an attorney should be within the first three calls that you make after a bike crash. Instead, the first calls should focus on your immediate physical, emotional, and practical needs.
Who You May Want to Call as Soon as a Crash Occurs
In the moments or hours after a Virginia motorcycle accident, you need to contact:
- Your doctor. You should contact your doctor’s office, even if you have been taken to the emergency room, so that your doctor is aware that you have been injured, can communicate with emergency room doctors, and can help coordinate your future care.
- Your family. You may need the emotional and practical support of your family during this difficult time. Additionally, your family may be worried if you don’t return home on time.
- Your employer. If you are going to miss any time from work because of your accident, it is important to let your employer know what happened to you.
Of course, your physical injuries may prevent you from making some of these calls immediately. However, it is important to make these calls as soon as possible if you are able to do so or to direct someone else to place the calls on your behalf.
