What to do if you get in an accident.
Obtain contact information from witnesses. Our firm uses this information to contact witnesses and collect statements regarding what they saw the day of your accident. Their accounts may shed light on the moments immediately before your accident occurred or the events that followed.
Seek medical attention. Even if you do not have any obvious injuries, visiting a doctor or hospital is always a good idea. The signs of some serious – and potentially deadly – injuries are subtle and are often not recognizable until your condition has worsened. Early treatment can be key to a full recovery.
Take color photos of your injuries and damage property. When it comes to presenting evidence of physical damage, a picture really is worth a thousand words. Being able to show the severity of lacerations or the duration of a deep tissue bruise is tangible evidence that cannot be ignored. Likewise, a photo of bloody clothes or damaged car shows the true effect the other party’s actions had on your property.
Write down your account of the accident. Memories fade over time. As weeks or months pass, you may begin to forget small but important details related to the circumstances surrounding your injury. Preserving your account of how an accident occurred and who was present gives us a clearer idea of who to talk to and what we should research about road or property conditions.
If applicable, obtain a copy of a police report. A police report is an effective tool that can be used to establish liability if the report is accurate. If a report contains mistakes, it is vital we know of these errors to take appropriate steps in disproving them.
Follow doctor’s orders. Do not skip any appointments or stop attending physical therapy until your treatment is complete. Doing so can damage your cause.
Keep copies of your medical records and any related bills. Medical records showing the dates you went to the doctor and their assessment of your conditions allows your attorney to show your injuries are a direct result of an accident and are not from pre-existing condition. Additionally, documenting the monetary expenses you have incurred as a result of your injury makes it easier to estimate the damages you should receive.
Save receipts for any repairs made to your property and records of lost wages. These documents can also be used to establish the extent of your economic losses.
