If you’re pursuing compensation from a personal injury you’ve sustained, it’s important to take purposeful steps to strengthen you case. These small but intentional steps could tip the scale in your favor! Consider these three tips:
After you’ve called the police, use your phone to take pictures of the area surrounding your injury. The more pictures you take, the better! Consider the following picture suggestions:
- Scene of the Accident
Visit a Doctor Right Away
Your injury that was caused by another person’s negligent actions is an important part of your personal injury case. By visiting a doctor as soon as possible after the negligence occurred will help prove that your injury is directly related to the accident.
Medical documentation about your injuries will help immensely during the case. Even if you don’t feel any pain, visit a doctor to ensure there are no underlying issues that may arise in the future.
Avoid Talking to the Other Insurance Company
Insurance companies have one priority – to keep money in house. They want to pay out as little as possible. They will likely try to call you hours or days after the accident. The company knows that you are in a vulnerable state and probably have not talked to a lawyer yet. Anything you say to the insurance company can be used in a court case, so it’s best to forego talking to them.
