Recovering The Damages From Your Car Accident

A car accident at the Lake of the Ozarks  or elsewhere is stressful and overwhelming. If it's a bad accident, the stress is ten-fold. Our car accident attorney in Osage Beach, MO is here to help you recover the maximum amount of damages possible for your case, but it's important to make sure the proper steps have been followed in order to set yourself up for success. If you have been in an accident, make sure you follow the following steps: TIP #1:  Move Your Vehicle Out Of The Road When possible, the very first thing you should do is get yourself and all involved vehicles out of the way of oncoming traffic as quickly as possible. If you remain in the roadway, you risk being hit by other vehicles and increasing the damages/injuries associated with your accident. TIP #2:  Call 911 The next thing you should do is call 911 and request the presence of emergency authorities. If the accident and resulting injuries are severe, you may need an ambulance and/or fire truck.
