There’s nothing more devastating than being injured. Whether it’s because you fell or were in a car accident, your life is turned upside down. Below are 3 tips that you can use to help your case before talking to an attorney.
1.Take Pictures & Names
Whether you are in a car accident or you have fallen somewhere, one of the biggest things you want to do is get pictures of the accident site. If you are unable to do this because you are too badly injured, have someone else take pictures.
You also want to get the names and information from any witnesses to the accident. It’s also to get a copy of your police report, if there was one.
2.Go to the Doctor or Hospital
It’s important that you get seen by a medical professional, even if you don’t think you are too badly injured. Depending on what kind of accident you were in, you might have whiplash. But going there right away will start a paper trail and help you have a better chance of getting a good pay-out.
Keeping receipts is important. This isn’t just for your medical bills, but it also could be for people who you hire to do housekeeping, take you to your appointments, etc. these are all going to be due to your injuries since you’re unable to do things for yourself.
These are three things you should do before you call an attorney. They’ll help get your case going in the right direction and give the attorney some help for your case.
