If you believe you have a personal injury claim against another person as the result of being hurt in an auto accident, it is important to take immediate appropriate action. Failure to act responsibly may impact your case negatively. Below are some important tips you should follow in order to have the best chances at a successful personal injury case.
Talk to No One but Your Personal Injury Lawyer: Do not talk to anyone about your car accident except your personal injury lawyers at The Law Office of Hans R. Hailey.
Be Honest With Your Doctor: You should return to each one of your doctors as often as necessary and should tell them about every complaint—do not minimize your injuries. Let The Law Office of Hans R. Hailey, your car accident injury attorney, know about new developments.
Keep Accurate and Detailed Records: Be sure to keep track of the following:
- Lost time and wages;
- Hospital, doctor, drug and other medical bills;
- Other losses directly resulting from your injury;
- Your complaints and progress as set out in your "My Day" instruction sheet;
- Any receipts.
Give this information to your car accident lawyers at The Law Office of Hans R. Hailey immediately.
Keep your records as detailed as possible.
Be Cautious with Repairs: In order to preserve the evidence for your case, do not have the means of transportation that was involved in your accident repaired until it has been photographed, examined by an expert or impounded.
Have Your Auto Accident Lawyers Present When you Face Legal Action: Do not appear or give statements without having your personal injury lawyer present.
Get Contact Information of Witnesses: This can be crucial. Keep the correct names, addresses and telephone numbers of all witnesses. This includes fellow workers and neighbors. Pass this information on to your car accident injury attorney at The Law Office of Hans R. Hailey.
Keep Track of Evidence: Keep the negatives and prints of any photographs pertaining to your case that you have. Contact your insurance carrier for a copy of all photographs in your case. If you are required to be in the hospital and are receiving any type of treatment, notify your personal injury attorney—and keep all forms of evidence including medical appliances.
Do your Best to Pay Hospital and Doctor Bills: Have your own insurance carrier pay as many hospital and doctor bills as possible. Doctors and hospitals are more cooperative when their bills are paid.
