The First Events After a Crash or Injury:

Although you were just injured, it is always a good idea for you or a loved one to chronicle the facts surrounding the injury as quickly and thoroughly as possible. Although you may remember everything in vivid detail at present, time quickly takes its toll, even on traumatic events such as this. The two questions to keep in mind as you chronicle the injury are “what happened to cause my injury” and “how was i injured.”

What Happened to Cause My Injury?

In many cases it is impossible to remember exactly what caused your injury because of the surrounding trauma. However, if you can remember anything at all, even if it seems insignificant, now is the time to write it down.

How was I Injured?

Immediately following the injury, you may not be able to evaluate the extent of your injuries. Asking a friend or family member may help you better chronicle these critical early stages. As you continue to progress, it is important to keep track of the treatments and how you are affected by both the treatments and the injuries. How does it affect your normal life, your work life, your personal life, etc.

What Else Do I Need to do Following an Injury?

Preserve Evidence - If you have anything at all in your possession that may be related to your injury, however small, please keep that item in a safe place for future use. For example, photographs, any damaged property of any kind, videos, packaging, any anything else related to your injury, no matter how seemingly insignificant

Contact a Lawyer - to help preserve your rights and help you fully recover from your injuries.

What Documents You Should You Have at Your Consultation, if Possible?

Medical Records - Bring any medical records you may have that are related to your claim, case, or injury. If possible, bring any medical bills you have already received. If you do not have any or all of your records or bills, please try to write down all of the medical providers that treated you for your injury, claim, or case. If you do not have this information, I can request all needed information on your behalf.

Prescription Medicine - Bring any prescriptions or a list of any prescription medication that you are taking, including the dosage amounts. If you do not have this information, I can request all needed information on your behalf.

Insurance Information - Bring any of your insurance information that you have concerning your case, even if you are not at fault. If applicable, bring your health insurance, car insurance, or homeowner’s insurance policies. If you do not have this information, I can request all needed information on your behalf.

Lost Wages - If you have suffered from the inability to work during this difficult time, then bring in whatever information you may have regarding your lost wages. For example, pay stubs. If you do not have this information, I can request all needed information on your behalf.

Any Documents Received from the Defendant or the Insurance Company - If you have received any documents at all, please bring those documents, if possible.  This includes any documents you may have received before or after your injury. Call me for more details.
