What to Do When Injured in a Car Accident
When you get injured in a car accident, your first reaction may be pure shock. Depending on the severity of your injuries, you may not be conscious or able to do anything right away. However, police reports will be filed, medical documents will be created, and you should be able to get the information you need about what happened in the crash.
Once you’ve begun recovery, you should determine who was at fault for causing your injuries. If you know or suspect that your injuries were caused by negligence, hiring a West Palm Beach car accident lawyer can ensure you receive compensation for your damages. At The Law Offices of Casey D. Shomo, we can help investigate your case and work through the legal process.
Keep Good Records
Keeping good records is one of the most essential parts of filing a car accident claim and maximizing your settlement amount. Once you’ve been injured in a car accident, there can be a lot of evidence available such as police records, medical bills, witness testimonies, video footage, and photographs. Any and all of this documentation will support your case and help prove negligence.
Your lawyer can help gather this evidence for you, but any records you’ve kept before hiring your lawyer will save them time in filing your claim.
