The U.S. Attorney General Advices about Filing Personal Injury Lawsuit. Part I

Following material will be useful for all people, because nobody can be sure of avoidance of any injuries or damages during his or her life. So the proposed advices may become helpful for you in some life situation. If you unfortunately have suffered from somebody’s action, take the next steps to supply yourself with potential compensation:

1. Write down the details of the case. 
That would be easier and more precise than to rely on your memory. One of the first things you have to do being injured is to notice down everything you can remember about the accident, including the least details of your injuries and their effect on your daily activity. These notes may be important when you will put together all the facts into a final demand for compensation. This may occur in a few months after the accident, when your memory won’t be still fresh. Here are some peculiar things to note down.

The accident.
If you are able, write down everything you can remember about how the accident happened, starting with what you were doing and where you were going, finishing with the least details - the people you were with, the time and weather was that day. Write about everything you heard and felt.

Injuries suffered.
Make a special diary where you will note all the effects of the injury on your health in their progress. Taking notes will make it easier for you to describe to an insurance company how much and what kind of pain and discomfort you suffered. Tell the doctor or another medical provider about all of your injuries, being a part of your medical records they will provide evidence later. 

Other losses.
You may get compensation for economic losses, family, social, educational, or other losses, as well as for discomfort suffered. So, to have evidence make notes just after the accident about anything you have lost because of it: work hours, meetings, classes, vacation, or anything else which you were unable to do because of the accident.

Conversations and meetings.
Make notes of the date, time, people, and content of every conversation you had about the accident.

2. Protect evidence of any damages. 
Try to find evidence of the accident during the first few days following an accident, preserve them carefully, they will help you to prove your case to an insurance company. If an accident happened somewhere outside your home, return to the scene as soon as you can manage and collect any evidence and photograph any conditions you believe to be useful for the case.

Protect physical evidence. 

It may be very important, for example, damage to the car can show how hard a collision was, and bloodied clothes can show the extent of your physical injuries. 

All these will help your personal injury attorney to defend you in court. Be sure in the proper assistance of the U.S. Attorney General and feel confident in your actions.
