Steps to Take After a Car Accident in Vermont
When you are involved in a car accident, certain steps taken both on the scene of the accident and immediately following can play a significant role in your ability to collect compensation. A majority of these steps involve data collection which can be helpful in building your personal injury case.
If you are unable to take action on the scene to the accident due to sever injury, the Vermont car accident attorneys at Van Dorn & Curtiss will do everything possible during the investigative portion of your claim to gather necessary information.
