See if You Can Connect with Local Law Enforcement
If you're in some sort of an accident that results in an injury, law enforcement officers (LEOs) will probably be involved in collecting information and witness accounts about your accident.
If you're at the scene of the accident when LEOs arrive or are transported to the hospital immediately after, the police department handling the case may give you contact information. Regardless, you should work with your lawyer to understand what local law enforcement knows about your case and work with them. The information they have could help you obtain more compensation for your injuries.
Find a Personal Injury Lawyer You Can Trust
Having a personal injury lawyer by your side is crucial if you want to maximize your chances of getting a favorable outcome in your case.
Personal injury attorneys will work with the party responsible for your injury and your insurance provider, advocating for your rights and best interests.
As we wrote about in another blog this month, insurance providers don't always have their clients' best interests in mind. A personal injury attorney will ensure you can navigate your case with ease.
Catalog Expenses Meticulously
You should catalog any expenses related to your injury as thoroughly as you can. That means getting documentation to verify any medical costs, additional expenses (such as therapy), lost wages, and future expenses that other professionals can confirm you'll endure as a result of the injury.
