What You Can Do Now to Protect Yourself
As an accident victim, there are several things that you can do now to protect your legal rights. While each case is unique, generally speaking, the following are four critical steps that individuals and loved ones should try to take following an accident in Irvine, CA:
1. Seek a Thorough Medical Diagnosis.
Seeking a thorough medical diagnosis is a critical early step toward securing financial compensation. In order to know what you’ve lost – and what you’re entitled to recover – you need to know the extent of your physical and emotional harm. If you are not sure where to go for medical treatment, we can refer you to a trusted physician.
2. Collect Evidence to Support Your Claim.
If possible, you should try to collect evidence to support your claim. This includes things like:
- Photos – You can never have too many photos. Try to take pictures of the scene of the accident, your injuries, and anything else that you think might be relevant to your claim for compensation.
- Witnesses – If anyone saw or heard the accident, try to collect their contact information to give to your attorney.
- Records – Keep receipts and be sure to get copies of your x-rays, scans, and other medical records.
- Journal – It can also be a good idea to keep a journal of your appointments, prescriptions, and how your injuries and other losses affect your life. This will help you remember key details should you need to provide testimony during your claim.
3. Avoid Discussing the Accident.
At this point, you do not want to discuss the accident with anyone other than your attorney. While you can report the accident to your insurance company, you do not want to give a recorded statement or talk about what you think may or may not have happened. Avoid discussing the accident with your friends and neighbors, and stay off of social media.
4. Seek Experienced Legal Representation.
With everything involved in pursuing a personal injury or wrongful death claim, there is simply no substitute for speaking with an experienced attorney. At Neale & Fhima, we offer free initial consultations (in person or over the phone), and we only collect a percentage of your recovery if we win your case. That way, it costs you nothing out of pocket to pursue your claim; and, if we don’t win, you don’t pay.
