Every year, many Canadians are injured in serious car accidents throughout the United States. Since Canada borders the United States, many people drive using their own private vehicles into the United States for vacation, business, and pleasure. When somebody has been injured in a motor vehicle accident caused by another's negligent actions, whether the accident victim is a US citizen or a tourist from another country such as Canada, the accident victim still has legal rights and may pursue monetary compensation for their losses. Those losses, otherwise known as damages, may include medical expenses, lost earnings, property damage, rental car reimbursements, pain, suffering, and other damages. The amount of money that an accident claimant can recover in a car accident lawsuit will depend upon the insurance coverages relevant to the accident claim, facts, and circumstances of the accident.

It is important that accident injury victims understand what to do following an accident. Understanding the accident claims process and speaking with an experienced car accident attorney may assist in receiving fair and full compensation for a potential claim.

The most important thing that an accident victim should do following a severe car accident is to seek medical attention for themselves and those in their vehicle. Regardless of how you or your passengers feel after an accident, many injuries are masted by adrenaline and show up later. In the United States, simply dial 911 to be connected with an emergency dispatcher. At that time, the 911 dispatcher will ask where you are located, what happened, how many are injured, and whether or not you need police, ambulance, or fire rescue crews. You should ask for all three. The 911 dispatcher will also ask if anyone has been badly injured or if anyone is bleeding heavily or is unresponsive so that emergency medical crews can be prepared to take immediate action at the accident scene.

Typically, accident injury victims will be transported to a local area hospital via ambulance. However, if an accident victim has sustained life-threatening injuries, helicopter medevac services may be called to the accident scene to transport the patient via air. In some instances, patients may be transferred to another hospital that has the proper staff and equipment to treat their significant accident-related injuries. No matter how you or your passengers feel, it is important to have an accident medical examination as quickly after the accident as possible. It is very important to have injuries documented and treated by your physician, as some injuries are internal and could develop if not diagnosed and treated promptly. For example, an accident victim may have internal bleeding or have a brain bleed that does not present symptoms immediately following an accident. These injuries can also be fatal if left untreated.

In the United States, people are required to exchange contact information and insurance information with all parties involved in an accident. It is also important to collect the names, addresses, and phone numbers of any car accident witnesses. It's also a good idea to provide your contact information to potential witnesses should they remember additional details about the crash in the future.

Auto accident insurance companies sometimes rely on police reports in determining liability. Therefore it is important that you speak to the police who are investigating your motor vehicle accident. It is also important to review the police accident report for errors and omissions.
