Stay off social media! That means Facebook, Twitter and Flickr. Don’t post photographs of yourself dancing if you’re claiming an injured back! Don’t tell anyone you went water skiing when you claim to have hurt your foot. Just stay off the internet and say as little as possible online instead.
When looking for personal injury lawyers, check online reviews. Avoid calling the yelling person you see in the TV ad. Making your attorney selection with this method is not a good idea. Instead, you should check out real-life experiences of an attorney to determine whether or not they would be a good fit for you.
Make sure that you gather all of the information you can from anyone that was involved in your injury. This means that you should get the addresses, names and phone numbers of the party that injured you as well as any witnesses that were on the scene. You should also take note of anything that is said during the time of the accident.
Seek medical attention. If you find yourself injured, see a doctor as soon as possible. In addition to being good health advice, you will need the doctor’s diagnosis and paperwork from your visit as evidence. Make sure you document everything, and keep copies for yourself. Failing to get medical attention after an accident or injury can actually reduce the award amount in a personal injury case.
