WHAT TO DO AFTER A PERSONAL INJURY
Although each personal injury is unique, there are steps that you should take to ensure you receive the care you need—especially if you’ve been injured in an accident. In addition to getting the medical care you need, be sure to follow all of these steps; this will help when it comes time to present evidence that strengthens your claim. These steps include:
Seek Medical Attention
In some personal injury cases with serious injuries, you may receive medical treatment at the scene of a car accident, your workplace, or the location where you were injured. In other cases, you may not receive treatment at the scene of the accident; however, you should still visit your doctor as soon as possible to determine whether you need medical treatment.
After you leave the hospital or doctor’s office, be sure to watch for any additional signs or symptoms that occur in the days following the accident. You shouldn’t ignore any signs or symptoms because you can experience the effects of an accident several days after it happens.
Report the Accident
After an accident, you should report it to the appropriate authority. For example, in a car accident, you should call the police and file a report. If you suffer from a workplace injury, you should notify your supervisor. A documented report of the accident may help strengthen your claim as it will contain important information about what occurred.
Document Your Damage
You may have been too injured or shaken to take photos of the damage at the scene of an accident. As soon as possible, be sure to take photos of the damage. This could include injuries you sustained in the accident, damage to a vehicle, or a defective product, among other damage that a personal injury can cause.
Keep Track of Your Expenses
It’s important that you keep track of all receipts and paperwork related to your accident. In order to seek the compensation you may deserve, it will be important to demonstrate how the personal injury financially impacted you. This could include:
- Hospital and doctor bills
- Physical therapy
- Chiropractor bills
- Documented time taken off from work due to any injuries
- Receipts for the repair or replacement of damaged property
