Injury Lawyer Explains What's Involved in Filing a Personal Injury Claim, Andalusia, Alabama

There is never a good time for an accident to occur, and if the accident results in an injury, it further worsens your situation. Will your injuries prevent you from working in the short- or long-term? How will you manage your other responsibilities in the interim? Should you obtain legal representation from an injury lawyer? Read on to learn what to do if an injury happens to you.

Follow These Steps When Filing A Personal Injury Claim

Tend To Your Medical Needs

After any accident, it’s important to address your health concerns first. It’s too easy to lose sight of what’s really important when faced with adversity. Your priority should be to achieve some level of stability by managing your medical issues as best you can.

Follow The Doctor’s Orders

injury lawyerIt’s critical to follow the instructions of your doctor and other medical personnel. Failure to return for office visits, tests, or therapy sessions is not going to assist in your recovery. You want to maintain continuity in your care, which also can benefit you if the situation leads you to court.

Insurance Assessment

Let’s assume, for example, that your accident was a motor vehicle crash. Was either party cited to be at fault in the accident? Does the driver who was responsible have insurance coverage? You may be awaiting a response from an insurance company to know what’s involved in repairing or replacing your car.

Find A Personal Injury Lawyer

If the results of the accident have caused you physical, emotional, or financial harm, you should seek legal help. Begin to review attorneys who specialize in personal injury law, such as those who handle car and motorcycle accidents. Ask trusted friends, family, or acquaintances for recommendations and schedule an initial consultation.

Gather Relevant Information

Prior to meeting with your injury lawyer, gather all relevant paperwork. Having the facts, such as the accident report and medical treatment documentation, will be very helpful.
