What to Do After Getting Injured

Upon sustaining an injury, you may feel disoriented and frightened. Not to mention, you could feel serious pain and suffering. While these experiences are normal, you are responsible for taking the proper steps following your incident, as they will enhance your personal injury claim and serve as powerful evidence in your favor:

Get medical help: Whether you feel injured after the incident or not, you should seek medical attention right away. Many times, underlying injuries such as internal bleeding and inflammation develop after an injury but can’t be detected without the proper medical screenings and treatments. Thus, you should see a doctor or emergency physician right after your accident regardless of whether you’re in pain or not. Your medical bills and referrals will also serve as evidence in your personal injury claim.

Call the police: Filing a police report will not only count as significant evidence but also get the authorities involved. The officers who arrive at the scene may be considered witnesses who can testify in your favor should your case go to trial.

Document the scene: Record the responsible party’s contact details, insurance information, and driver’s license information. You should also gather witnesses’ names and contact information, in addition to the police officer’s name and badge number when they arrive at the scene. We recommend you also compile the following to strengthen your personal injury claim:

  • Pictures and videos of the accident scene
  • Pictures and videos of your injury
  • Doctor’s notes
  • Bills related to your injury (medical, bank statements, etc.)
  • Police reports

Proving Negligence in Your Case

Injuries result from another person’s or entity’s negligence. Thus, to maximize your chances of winning your claim, our attorney will work to prove the following four elements of negligence. They include:

  • Duty of Care: The defendant was legally obligated to treat you with care and prevent harming you.
  • Breach of Duty: The defendant breached their duty by acting or not acting a certain way.
  • Causation: The defendant’s actions, or failure to act, resulted in your injury, whether it be bodily harm or harm to property.
  • Damages: The victim must prove that they suffered bodily harm or harm to their property to receive compensation, or damages, from the responsible party. Damages may include medical bills, proof of lost wages, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, and property damage.
