Generally, seek medical attention and get as well as you can and then contact an attorney. If you are unable to do so have a family member or someone you trust contact an attorney to discuss the matter. Since we and most law firms give a free consultation there is no cost for you to discuss your legal rights sooner rather than later. The down side of not hiring an attorney as soon as reasonable following the accident is that often times witnesses and evidence disappear making it much harder when you do hire an attorney at a later date.
