In the video above, Raleigh injury lawyer Brent Adams explains why you should never call a lawyer first instead of a doctor immediately following a car accident. Calling an injury attorney before seeking medical attention will make you appear as if you are only interested in a lawsuit. If you are injured, you need to call a doctor. You well-being is the top priority. Also, tell the treating medical staff about the accident so that the medical records will accurately include injuries associated with your car crash.
