Preserving your Legal Rights immediately after the incident occurs

I was walking down a ramp to a commuter boat recently on a rainy day and fell;  fortunately, I was not injured but it still surprised me afterwards how I failed to follow the same advice which I always give to injury victims.  Specifically, I found that I was embarrassed and that I wanted to involve as few people as possible, even those who witnessed my fall.

Seat Belt Law here in Massachusetts

 Here in Massachusetts, any person over the age of 12 riding in a private vehicle must wear a seatbelt, regardless of whether you are a driver or passenger.  This law, c. 90, s. 13A, does not apply to persons riding in non-private vehicles, i.e., buses or cabs, nor does it apply in certain other limited circumstances.  However, the intent of the law is clear- the use of seat belts can save lives.  The link below vividly [and sadly] demonstrates the rationale behind this law.
