What to Do After Being Injured in an Accident
What you do and say in the immediate aftermath of an injury-causing accident on the road, at work, or on someone else's property can affect your case. If you have been injured in an accident due to the negligence of another, then there are two steps you must take as soon as possible:
- Seek medical attention - This is essential so that you may have any injuries treated even if you don't experience pain right away, but also to have the severity of your injuries documented to be used in your case at a later time.
- Seek skillful representation - If you wish to pursue money damages for the suffering and the financial hardship that you have incurred, then you need representation as soon as possible.
Our firm can provide you with the representation that you need throughout the duration of your case or claim-filing process. We have helped numerous clients in the past, and we can work with you to pursue the favorable outcome you need. In order to bring a personal injury lawsuit or file a compensation claim, you must be able to prove two elements of your case:
- The other person acted negligently
- Their negligence was a proximate cause for your injuries
In order to show that the other individual or entity acted negligently, you must show that they owed you a duty of care and that they violated this duty of care through deliberate intention, or that an unreasonable accident was caused due to recklessness. For example, if you are crossing the street at a cross-walk and a driver headed your way has a red light, then the driver owes you a duty of care; if the driver ignores the red light and hits you, then he has violated the duty.
