Steps to Take After a Personal Injury

If you or a loved one experiences a personal injury, take these immediate steps:

  1. First and foremost, be sure to get medical attention if you need to do so.
  2. Document evidence of the scene of the accident as thoroughly as possible. Take photos of the accident, the surroundings, and yourself. Some personal injury cases take months to be brought to court, and you will need this evidence later. If you cannot take photos of the scene of the crime, be sure you get a friend or family member to do it for you.
  3. If you have not already spoken to the police, call them and give them your personal account of what happened. This will also be crucial for when your case goes to court.
  4. Call a personal injury lawyer so you can file a claim and be compensated for your injuries as soon as possible.
