What to Do after an Accident
By taking certain steps after you’ve been injured in an accident, you greatly increase your chances of obtaining maximum compensation.
If you have experienced an injury in an accident, take these steps:
- Get medical attention immediately.
- Contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.
- Don’t give any written or taped statements to insurance companies.
- Write out the details of your accident and give it to your attorney only.
- Get doctor’s notes for all necessary time taken off from work due to your injuries.
- Save all physical evidence related to your case, don’t tamper with it.
- Record all the contact information of witnesses/other involved parties.
- Take photos of property damage, injuries, accident scene, and other pertinent details.
- Ask your employer to document any wages lost due to your injuries.
- Don’t sign medical authorizations or releases without attorney approval.
- Provide your doctor with detailed injury information.
In addition, keep gaps of time between medical appointments short. Otherwise, the insurance companies will likely try to argue that treatment after a long break in between appointments was not related to your accident injuries.
