What do I do if I am in an accident in Birmingham AL?

The first thing to do is seek emergency medical treatment for yourself or anybody else injured in the accident, if necessary.  The police should be called, and if possible, do not move the vehicles or otherwise alter the scene until the police arrive.  While the police will investigate the accident and obtain statements from those involved and any witnesses, you should also obtain contact information yourself for any witnesses at the scene.  You should also take photos of the scene from different angles if possible.  If you are unable due to your injuries to give a statement to police at the time of the accident, be sure to obtain a copy of the police report as soon as possible, and review it for any inaccurate statements or missing information.  As soon as possible after the accident, contact a qualified Birmingham personal injury lawyer to discuss what happened.
