Hi! My name is Sam, and I started this blog to help other injured people. Before you start reading, let me tell you a little about myself. Ten years ago, I slipped on a slice of fruit in a grocery store. My leg slid out from under me, and in a freak twist, it was rendered useless. I could no longer work and struggled with intense pain every day. Luckily, I found an accident and injury attorney who was able to get me the compensation I needed to cover my medical bills and my lost time at work. However, while I waited for the settlement to come through, I had to get creative physically and financially. This blog is dedicated to anyone who is in that limbo position. I hope the posts here help you decide what to do while you wait for the results of your trial.
Have you recently found yourself to be a victim of an auto accident that resulted in injuries? If so, then you will probably want to talk with an auto accident lawyer in order to start building the case you want to the courts. This way, you can receive the financial compensation that you need to cover all of your bills and the wages that you have lost from not going to work. Now, to make sure that you are going to have as strong of a case as possible, you will want to review the following tips.
Stay Factual With The Retelling Of The Accident
It is very easy to make it sound like certain aspects of the accident were a lot worse than they were, especially considering all of the pain and trauma that you have been through. You might not even realize that you are doing it unless you are being very careful to listen to yourself tell the story. The very fact that you were in this accident, that you were injured, and that it was caused by the negligence of someone else is good enough. So, try to first write out the order of events as you remember them taking place. Staying as accurate as possible will also help your lawyer to avoid being caught off guard by something the other lawyers dispute.
Get A List Of Witnesses
Your lawyer will want to sit down and interview anyone that was a witness to the accident, whether they were another passenger in the vehicle you were in or they were standing nearby and watched it all happen. You will want to create a list of the names and contact numbers for everyone that witnessed the accident, as well as anyone that can testify in regards to how your life has been altered as a result of the injuries that your sustained from the accident. The more eye-witness testimony you can have for your case, the easier it will be for a judge to see things your way and give you the compensation that you ask for.
Always make sure that you are following any additional advice and requests that your auto accident lawyer gives you. Remember that he or she has been through this before. They know the judge that will be handling your case, and they might be familiar with the lawyer that will be representing the at-fault driver.Share
