CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: What We Are Doing to Protect Our Clients

I've been injured -- what should I do first?

See a doctor! If you feel that you've suffered an injury, your first and foremost concern should be your health. Whether you ever pursue a claim or not against someone you believe caused the injury is of much less importance than seeking the medical care which may be necessary to protect you against further, long-term health problems. Get the medical care you need and get it promptly!

See our Accident Checklist for further things to do immediately after an accident injury.

If your injury occurred in the state of California, contact the Law Offices of Edward A. Smith for a free, confidential, no-obligation review of the facts of your case by using our Personal Injury Questionnaire.

If you have other questions regarding a personal injury claim, please feel free to contact us.
