Personal injury also means any injury resulting from:
- Malicious prosecution
- False arrest
What should you do whey you want to claim for personal injury?
Two critical issues in any legal claim after an accident or injury are:
- What exactly happened during the incident that gave rise to the claim?
- What kind of harm resulted?
Just note down every little thing that has caused accidents. Injury law is complex so it may take a year or so to get your rights. In order to successfully claim for your right it is important to remember even the minutest detail of incident that led to the accident.
What shall you make note of?
Just note down exactly what happened before, during and after the accident. Mention the time, place weather condition, people present, words said. How the incident played out, what you felt and experienced and anything that you may consider is worth to mention.
The next thing to record is to make a note of your injuries and extent up to which you have suffered (physical, mental and financial). Medical Treatment you received, the number of days you missed to work, meeting, vacations or any such schedules that are being cancelled or postponed and the affect of your injuries on your close family relationship.
Take notes throughout the claim process
As your claim progresses, continue to keep track of new developments by taking notes after any conversations with your insurance company, medical care providers, witnesses to the incident, and anyone else with whom you discuss important aspects of your case. Write down each person’s name and contact information, the date and place of the conversation, and as much as you can remember about what was said.
Preserve evidences and take photos
To substantially claim for the compensation save pictures of the accident scene, your personal injury and other evidences that may be of some importance. This will help you to physically present something in court that can act as evidence.
Though taking time to do all these may sound impractical thinking about the traumatic experience one undergoes during the time of accident. But if you or your loved one can manage to do this, it will be a great boon for you.
