Here are some steps to follow in the event of personal injury:
Seek immediate medical attention – In most cases, symptoms do not show up immediately. Get evaluated by a doctor and keep records of all your medical diagnoses and treatments.
Determine if there are witnesses – Ask them to stay until help arrives and write down their names and contact details if you can. Fill out an incident report, if possible.
Document Expenses – These can include lost wages, medical bills, co-pay fees, prescription fees, and any other related costs. It is important to have verifiable proof when seeking damages.
Keep meticulous evidence of injuries – From paperwork, conversations, photos and videos to every person you speak with to your insurance company, be as specific as possible on documenting names, titles, times, dates , advice, etc.
Don’t Carelessly Share Information – Don’t discuss your case with any insurance company other than your own. Do not sign any agreement to settle a claim.
Beware of Fraudsters – Unfortunately, there are people who scour public records, including police reports, as an opportunistic way to take advantage of people when they are most vulnerable. Beware of unsolicited people or companies who may try to contact you by phone, mail or in person.
