Q: My son was a passenger in his friend’s car and they got into an accident. His friend didn’t report the accident but I think he should. Who is right?
A: You are, especially if there was property damage or someone was injured. And while your son may feel fine now, he could begin to become stiff and sore over the next few days. Hopefully, those symptoms will go away, but it’s always prudent to see a doctor immediately following an accident. And if it turns out that your son needs on-going medical treatment, it’s especially important that there is an official record of what happened. To protect your son’s rights, consult with an attorney who can help you determine the best course of action.
