What should I do if I have been seriously injured in an accident?
Once you’ve been involved in an accident in Alabama, you should first report the accident to the proper authorities immediately. If your injuries have come as a result of an automobile or truck accident, you should get a copy of the accident report from the police right off the bat and notify your insurance carrier as soon as possible. If you were seriously injured at a commercial establishment, either your place of business or another company, make sure the owner or manager of that business is made aware of it immediately and ensure that a written report documenting the injury is submitted.

The insurance companies are looking to protect themselves and limit their own liability. Don’t help them out at your own expense…
