There is no doubt that a motor vehicle accident can be a terrifying thing, but a van rollover accident can sometimes be even more frightening. Vans are larger and heavier than passenger cars, and they often carry more occupants or cargo – both of which can get thrown around in the course of an accident. If you are in such a crash, a New Brunswick van rollover lawyer can tell you what steps to take afterwards.
Directly after the crash
- Seek medical assistance. This may be the most important step you can take after a bad accident. If you have a cell phone, call an ambulance immediately after the crash. If you do not have a cell phone, try and get someone at the scene to call or go for help while you stay with any other victims.
- Call the police. Have the police visit the scene as soon as possible to take a report, and possibly interview witnesses.
- Gather information. Try to get the driver’s license number, registration number, insurance policy, license plate number, and other important information from other drivers involved. Don’t forget to collect the names and numbers of anyone else who may have been present. You never know when your New Brunswick van rollover lawyer may need this information in order to process your case later.
