Personal Injury Attorney
If you have been hurt, you need to take immediate action. Here are a few steps to take in order to minimize your recovery time (including recovery from high medical bills:
- Don't admit fault. Even if you think it was your fault, it may not have been. Once you have examined the situation with a professional, this determination can be made. Remember, your statements may be admissible later on during litigation. If you are too shaken up at the scene of an accident, you may request time to calm down from the police prior to making any statement. You may also speak with an attorney before doing so.
- Go to a doctor. This will begin the documentation of the injury. Be sure to ask your doctor's office for a copy of any of the medical records involved with your visit.
- Take pictures. Take photographs of the injury (both for the case and so you can brag about it later). Take as many as you can at the scene of the accident too (if you have been hurt badly, you may have a friend do this for you).
