So You Have A Personal Injury... Now What?

Friday, March 2, 2018

Accidents are just that, an accident.  But when it comes to things like car accidents, some of the outcomes can be devastating and have a lasting negative effect.  

It can happen to any of us at any time no matter how careful we are.  You're driving home from work minding your own business, driving the speed limit, and obeying all known traffic laws and then BAM!  Someone else hits you.  So you're car is crumpled and you're frustrated because this is going to be a hassle to deal with but also you have an injury.   Or maybe you don't know it yet and after the police come and a report is filed and information is exchanged, you have intense back pain that won't go away.   You may very well have a personal injury. 

Or maybe you think it's your fault and are afraid.... in that case you still need to go see a doctor.  

See A Doctor ASAP
When ever this happens, see a doctor immediately!  The sooner the better but if you can go see one right away it's probably best.  It can very much affect any claims with your insurance so make it a priority to see a medical professional immediately!   This is a very important step not only for your own health but because it's going to strengthen any sort of personal injury claims you have.  

Take Notes and Photos
Immediately take photos of your injuries as well as any damage to your vehicle.  Write down notes with what the doctors have told you and make note of all of your feelings and symptoms as a result of the personal injury. 

Keep Record of Expenses
Make a list and keep the receipts for any expenses having to do with your injury whether it's medical costs, medications, or any kind of products you have to buy to be comfortable. 

Consider a Personal Injury Attorney
A personal injury attorney like Tampa Injury Attorneys Winters & Yonker can help you through the chaos of this difficult time.  An experience attorney knows the laws and the processes in place to help you recover significant money that you lose because of your injury. 

Winters & Yonker (personal injury attorneys Tampa) will fight for you in court if necessary and you won't have to pay unless you collect.  Being in an accident and suffering an injury can be a very scary thing so don't even try to go at it alone without the help of an experienced professional.
