When you have been injured as the result of an accident or someone’s reckless or negligent conduct, you likely have a lot of concerns over the amount of compensation you may be entitled to, as well as how to go forward in filing your claim. The following are some of the most frequently asked questions we get from our clients:
What are the first things I should do in the event I am injured in an accident?
There are several things you should do in the immediate aftermath of an injury. One is to notify the proper authorities, whether that be your local police, a security guard, or a supervisor at the place where your accident occurred. Next, make a mental note of the circumstances surrounding your accident, the time it occurred, and whether there were any witnesses. Lastly, be sure and get the medical care you need for your injuries, follow all your doctor’s instructions, and notify your insurance company as soon as possible.
