When you’re getting ready to file a personal injury lawsuit, the process can often get confusing and overwhelming. On top of all of the steps you have to follow, there may also be pressure from the defendant to settle for less than you deserve without going to trial. Seeking the help of an experienced personal injury attorney who can review the details of your accident and determine if you have a case is a good starting point – once you’ve sought medical assistance for your injuries.
It’s a good idea to document everything; your lawyer will likely want to review all pieces of information you can share. In an effort to illustrate the legitimacy of your injury and its impact on your life, it’s important to get medical care right away and be thorough in attending your follow-up appointments. Tell your doctor about all your pain, no matter how small or insignificant you perceive it to be. Take photos of all your injuries – from the day of your accident through the healing process.
The impact of your injury will speak for itself. It will not help you to embellish or omit any details of the circumstances that led to your accident. If the defense sees a hole in your story, it may impact your credibility. Tell your lawyer everything so they can prepare your case with all of the available information. If you leave anything out and they find out later, you’re only hurting yourself.
