Injured In An Accident? How to Record Your Injuries.

Being injured in an accident is a trying time. In addition to coping with the pain and disruption to your life, you will be forced to also deal with the financial and legal fallout of the accident.

As many parties may be liable for paying compensation to those who have suffered damages, it is vital to your case to record the full extent of your injuries in a way your legal team can use to support your claim. Below are the steps we recommend to take after being injured in a crash.

After being injured in a crash and receiving medical attention, we recommend the following

- Write down all your pains and complaint areas.

- Inform your doctor, in writing, of all the pains and complaints.

- If pain or symptoms are moving from an area to another; example: shooting pain down arm or leg; write this on your list and inform your doctor in writing.

- High pitch ringing in ears, sleep problems, double vision, memory problems, jaw soreness and headaches are all symptoms that must be mentioned to your doctor in writing.

- Call, mail or e-mail all your complaints of pain and discomfort to your attorney for inclusion in your file.

- Call, mail or e-mail all the diagnostic information and recommendations your doctor is giving you to your attorney for inclusion in your file.

- Keep a diary (written or on the computer) of dates of ALL pain complaints arising from the accident.


 

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
