If you have been hurt in a car wreck, you can do these three things to get a head start on your personal injury claim.
1. Take pictures and video at the accident scene
If you or any of your passengers are able to, take pictures and video at the accident scene. Get footage of all vehicles and damage involved. Memories fade as time goes on, so get as many photos and videos as you can. You can also make notes in your phone about the details of the accident. The more the better!
2. See a doctor ASAP
See a doctor for your injuries as soon as possible. This could mean you go to the emergency room, an urgent care clinic, or schedule an appointment with your primary care doctor. Be sure you tell your doctor about all of the pain and injuries related to the accident. This creates a record of all of your accident injuries, which we can then take to the at-fault driver’s insurance company for payment.
3. Call a personal injury lawyer
A personal injury law firm like Carrollton Injury Law can help you get more money in your pocket from a personal injury claim, because injury claims are all we do. We have an experienced team who can help you every step of the way from helping you find a doctor who will not require payment up front, all the way through getting the highest possible settlement check from the insurance company, or if necessary, going to court to fight for what you deserve.
