If you’ve been injured in an accident, the last thing on your mind is preserving your legal claim. Your number one focus needs to be on your health and getting the medical treatment you need. Then, if you’re able, you should try to do these three things to make your legal claim as strong as possible:
- Call the police to ensure a police report is created.
- Describe all of your injuries to your medical care provider and let them know that you were in an accident.
- Take photos of your injuries and any property damage. If you can do so safely, take photos of the scene of the accident too.
Once you’ve received the care you need, contact a lawyer. Contacting a lawyer early allows you to focus on recovery while we take care of the paperwork and short deadlines. It also allows your legal counsel to gather information while witnesses’ memories are fresh.
If you’ve been injured and are in need of legal counsel, call us. We’d be delighted to help you determine if we are the right lawyers to help you.
