Personal injury advice is often sought
after an accident. On this page, we do not offer specific personal
injury advice since 1) we are publishers and not lawyers 2) every
case is unique. The personal injury advice we do offer is very
general, common sense advice that will be applicable to as many
people as possible.
For specific advice for your specific case,
you'll want to contact a personal injury lawyer. The first
thing to do after receiving a personal injury is to get immediate
medical care. The second course of action is to document the injury.
If you've received a personal injury due to an automobile accident,
you'll want to report it to the police and to your insurance company
as soon as possible. While seeing the doctor, you'll want to tell
the physician exactly what happened so that they'll treat you
appropriately and so there is a detailed medical record that may
come into play later. Also, write an account of the accident as
soon as possible while the details are still fresh in your mind.
Taking photographs of the vehicles involved and the scene of the
accident will also prove helpful in making the case. Keep your
ears open to the personal injury advice you're sure to receive
from others along the way and some of this may provide to be useful.
If you've receive a workplace injury, then report this to your
employer. If you don't have time, then seek medical treatment
first, then report the incident to your employer. Write a personal
account of what happened and why while the details are still fresh.

Remember, when receiving an injury the best course of action,
though it may seem counterintuitive at the time, is the document
everything. When seeking personal injury advice, once again, take
notes and document everything. Having a large and detailed paper
trail will be the best friend that you and your attorney can have
if your case goes to trial. Even if you case doesn't goes to trial
and gets settled out of court, having a comprehensive and detailed
paper trail will leave you in a better negotiating stance and
most likely with a higher payout as well.
