Being hit by a negligent driver is something no Gainesville resident wants to experience. Still, car collisions, truck accidents and pedestrian accidents happen frequently in and around Gainesville. As a result, it's important to know what to do after a damaging accident in order to prepare for a potential personal injury suit.
First, even if an accident appears relatively minor and the accident victim does not feel any pain, it may still be important to document evidence of the crash. This can be for insurance purposes, of course, but also because an injury may arise later on even if pain wasn't felt immediately. In any case, physical evidence of both the auto accident and any injuries can be crucial if a legal action is taken later against a negligent driver.
