If you or someone you love has been hurt by a negligent driver, remember
that what you say and do can impact your personal injury case, and potentially
your right to compensation. Remember these few simple tips whenever you’ve
been involved in a wreck:
Call the police – Law enforcement can help provide emergency medical aid if needed,
speak to all involved parties and witnesses, and compile a police report
of what happened in the incident. These reports can be crucial pieces
of evidence in a personal injury case.
Don’t discuss fault – Saying “sorry” or accepting blame in any way could
mean that insurers think you’re at fault for causing the wreck,
even if you did not. Never discuss fault or apologize – simply make
sure medical aid is called if needed and get as much information as you can.
Get information – Make it a point to gather as much information as you can from
all drivers involved and any witnesses who may be available. These pieces
of information are paramount to your case.
Take photos – If you have a camera on your smart phone, take photos of the scene,
damages to cars, and any visible injuries you might have. These photos
can provide additional evidence for investigation and building your case.
Get a medical evaluation – Seek timely medical treatment as soon as you are able to do so,
not only because it is important for your health, but also because it
provides evidence of your injuries. Don’t try to tough it out or
think that nothing’s wrong. Let a medical professional conduct a
full assessment to ensure you are okay.
Know your rights – As a victim injured by the negligence of another, you have the
right to pursue a recovery of any damages that follow your accident and
injury in the civil justice system. You also have a right to have legal
representation when navigating the personal injury claim process.
