Steps to Take After a Personal Injury Incident Accident
The steps that you take after an accident can be important to your personal injury case. We recommend the following actions after your accident:
Seek Medical Help Immediately
Some injuries do not manifest until several days or weeks after an accident. Seek medical attention immediately after your accident, even if you are not in significant pain. A doctor can evaluate your injuries and begin treatment. A post-accident evaluation can also create a link in your medical record between the accident and your injuries that could be useful in your case.
Document Everything Accident Related
Whether you received medical treatment or lost pay due to being out of work, you should document all paperwork, communications, and other forms of evidence related to the accident. If possible, try to take photos of the accident or your injuries. Keep all medical bills, accident reports, and receipts. Your attorney may use this information to build your case.

A personal injury can affect key areas of your life, such as your finances, your future, and your health. As such, you have the right to explore the areas where you were impacted by the accident. Damages you may be able to claim include:
Past and Future Medical Expenses

Lost Income and Benefits
If you were unable to of work for several weeks due to your accident, you may have lost hundreds of dollars in pay. You may also be able to include benefits, tips, bonuses, or lost employment opportunities to your damages.
Physical and Emotional Suffering
An accident can impact more than just your finances. You may endure physical suffering and emotional stress afterward. You may be able to receive compensation for pain and suffering or loss of quality of life under some circumstances.
