How to Build a Strong Personal Injury Claim From the Start, Manhattan, New York

Accident victims are often surprised to learn that building a strong claim begins before they even leave the scene. For example, those who are physically well enough to do so should always photograph the site where the incident occurred before anything changes. Below, the personal injury attorneys from the Law Offices of Iannuzzi and Iannuzzi share a few early steps for building a case to secure the compensation you deserve.

3 Steps Your Personal Injury Attorney Wants You to Take 

1. Seek Medical Care

Some kinds of physical trauma do not manifest symptoms right away. As a result, it is important for your health and safety to seek medical attention after an accident, even if you feel fine. If it turns out you did sustain an injury, visiting a doctor immediately will also contribute to the strength of your claim. For example, the opposing party will not be able to argue that the severity of the injuries is owed to postponing treatment.    

2. Gather All Critical Contact Information

If you are hurt on the job, on the other hand, your personal injury attorney will want to collect testimony from any coworkers who saw the incident. Regardless of the circumstances, building a strong claim always begins with contacting all parties involved.

3. Write Down Everything You Remember

Memory can be unreliable, especially if you let a considerable amount of time pass before trying to recall specific details. For this reason, it is wise to write down everything about the accident in question as soon as possible. This might include the time of day, the weather conditions, and strange or unusual happenings. Since anything could ultimately prove fault, there is no detail too small to include.

Once you have done all the above, it’s time to contact a personal injury attorney. Turn to the Law Offices of Iannuzzi and Iannuzzi in New York City for help filing your claim.
