What do you do after a Personal Injury?

Any accident can be a devastating experience and can have lasting effects on your quality of life no matter how small they initially appear to be.  The most important thing that you can do after an accident or injury is to get medical help.  At the accident site, it is important to document as much as you possibly can. It will be the last thing on your mind but you need to be prepared as this step is vital in the event that you end up having a serious injury. You will want to collect information and documentation such as:

  • image and/or video of the accident area
  • witness information and contact numbers and emails
  • road conditions
  • floor conditions
  • weather conditions
  • surrounding areas such as broken street lights
  • drivers information in the event of a car accident
  • managerial information in the event of an accident at an establishment

Help Is On The Way

While you wait on assistance from law enforcement or medical staff, you want to ensure that you fill out any accident documentation necessary with law enforcement or the establishment, these are often called incident reports if they happen at your place of employment or another establishment. You will also want to retain a copy and if you are not secure in the fact that you will receive one, be sure to capture an image of it on your cellphone.

Best Practices For Safety Purposes

Whether you were in a car accident and injured as a result of another driver’s negligence or whether you tripped and fell at a Walmart, the fact is that there was a duty to safety that was not adhered to. Whether a reckless driver hit your car or whether a retailer failed to put up a caution sign after mopping, someone else’s negligence has now resulted in your injury. They may be liable for your pain and suffering and you may be entitled to damages.
