Preparation Is Key
When you or a loved one are injured as a result of an accident or someone else’s negligence, many steps need to be taken to in order to determine if you have a valid legal basis to file a lawsuit. For all personal injury cases, preparation is critical. While hiring the right attorney will be key, it’s also essential that you take several important actions. Some of the crucial things you need to do anytime you’re injured and believe you might have a lawsuit include the following:
- Medical Treatment
As obvious as this may sound, if you have been injured, you will not be taken seriously by the court system or the insurance companies if you have not been to a medical doctor.
If you do have visible injuries, always take photos. Providing evidence of your injuries is going to be a significant aspect of any personal injury case. If you fail to document your injuries with photographs and medical records, you are much less likely to be successful with your claim.
In addition to taking photos, it’s also wise to take notes about the accident and what occurred. You might think that you’ll remember everything vividly, but you’re going to be dealing with many complicated issues if you decide to file a lawsuit. Take notes about what you’re feeling emotionally and physically so that if you need to testify in court, you will have notes to review, which will help your testimony be as accurate as possible. This can also include keeping a journal, detailing the daily struggles that you now endure because of your injured status. Little details like difficulty sleeping, or using the bathroom or problems showering, or even the pain of laughing, can paint a vivid picture later on down the road as to what you experienced.
