Personal Injury Checklist: Tips to Strengthen Your Claim
If you were hurt in an accident due to another person's negligence or recklessness, there are steps you should take to give your claim the best possible chance of resulting in fair compensation. Being proactive in the aftermath of a serious injury can have a profound impact on the outcome of your case. Here are just a few steps you should take as soon as possible:
- Report the Accident: Whether you were injured in a car wreck or a slip and fall on a commercial property, you should report the accident right away. Doing so will ensure the incident is properly documented, which may help your attorney prove negligence, causation, and liability.
- Visit a Doctor: The importance of seeking immediate medical attention cannot be overstated. Even if you feel fine and would rather avoid the expense, foregoing the medical evaluation could make it difficult for your personal injury lawyer to tie your injuries to the accident and to prove their severity.
- Secure Your Social Media Profiles: It is best to deactivate your social media profiles if you intend to file a personal injury claim. That way, the insurance company and/or the defendant’s legal team cannot review your social media accounts for photos and posts to use against you. If you have no choice but to keep your social media profiles active, be sure to set them to “private.”
- Contact a Personal Injury Attorney: Putting off your legal consultation is one of the biggest mistakes you can make if you intend to file a claim. A small oversight or misguided statement may be all it takes to derail your case. Harris Personal Injury Lawyers is available 24/7 to answer your call. Our attorneys will start building your claim immediately. We will gather evidence while it is still available and unaltered, talk to witnesses, handle correspondence with the opposing party, and help you fight for the maximum settlement.
Call 1-800-GO-HARRIS to Discuss Your Case with our Avila Beach Accident Attorneys
DO NOT sign any documents until you have spoken to an Avila Beach personal injury attorney. Once you accept a settlement offer, you will not be able to pursue further compensation. The accident lawyers at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers will review your case, calculate your damages, and help you pursue the full compensation that you are owed. We will not settle for anything less than what you need to cover your injury-related expenses. Our personal injury lawyers work only on contingency. This means that we do not require upfront fees and are only owed dues if we win your case. That's right, if we do not win, you do not owe us a dime.
