Been injured in an accident? Take steps to protect your case.

Mar 9, 2008
a. See your Doctor: Do not hesitate to see your Doctor if you are injured. Be open and honest with your Doctor about your condition especially with respect to the location and intensity of the pain. Do not make any false statements to your Doctor about previous injuries. However, if you cannot remember the answers to the questions your Doctor is asking do not be afraid to say that you do not remember. Do not guess and give potentially false information. Follow your doctor's advice.

b. Do Not Give Any Statements: Do not give any statements to anyone, whether in writing, over the phone, or in person without first speaking to an Attorney.

c. Visit http://www.personalinjuryresourcecenter.com to locate an attorney near you. Your lawyer will then be able to advise you regarding the proper next steps to take.

d. Make no admissions of fault: As mentioned above, speak to no one save your attorney or doctor regarding your injury. Statements to others may be interpreted to be admissions of fault.

e. Take Pictures: Of any damage to your property if applicable. If your vehicle is smashed in an auto accident, use good quality film and take at least 30 pictures.

f. Save Evidence: Keep all medication bottles, leg or arm braces, casts, and any other such items from your Doctor.

g. Location of Accident: Provide your lawyer with all documentation in your possession including videos or photos of the accident scene that you have or that you've gathered from witnesses.

h. Gather Receipts: Obtain all of your receipt or get all of them which itemize your expenses that you incurred as a result of your injuries. Ensure that the receipts are readable and contain all relevant provider or vendor information.

i. Additional facts: Talk to your attorney and make sure that you tell him everything you can remember about your case. Do not be afraid that you are overwhelming him with details or wasting his time; he will direct you to the important facts. But he can't spot all the relevant issues if you leave out a key piece of the puzzle.
