Write down all of the specifics of the incident that you can. This will include knowing approximately where and when the incident took place. Keep records of all of your medical expenses, including physical therapy and driving expenses.
Never sign anything without legal counsel. Ask your local police department for a police report of your incident and retain all police or law enforcement paperwork if you have it. Gather witness information (name, phone number, etc.) or anyone knowledgeable about the case.
You don’t need to have any of this paperwork to file a claim or to contact a law firm but it does help your case overall.
The most important thing to do – before you do anything else – is to contact a personal injury lawyer for a free consultation. Only with experienced and professional legal counsel can you truly reclaim your rights.
