The Secret to Winning Your Personal Injury Case in 5 Easy Steps

Attention stamp

Personal injury claims get a bad rep these days. Some people think that when people file personal injury claims they’re trying to cheat the system or fake an injury to make a few bucks. After all, as a country, we do tend to file lawsuits a lot.

But filing a personal injury claim is nothing to be ashamed of. What people don’t understand is that there are so many honest people who are injured in accidents. They’re not trying to be vindictive. They’re not out to rob the at-fault party of every penny they have. They just want to be compensated for their injuries – pay off their medical bills, make up for time lost at work, etc. To this end, I’ve compiled a list of a few things that can help you win you’re personal injury case if you’re in this situation.

  1. Document your injuries. As soon as you are injured or in an accident, document the damages. Take photos of your personal injuries and damages to your property. Talk to eyewitnesses about what they saw. Get the information of the at-fault party so that you can be in touch.
  2. Go to the hospital and get medical treatment. So many times, victims of accidents just say they’re fine and brush off the injury. Their adrenaline is pumping and they feel ok initially, so they don’t think they’re hurt. However, this is not always the case. Go to the hospital and get everything checked out as a precautionary measure. This will also help you document your injuries.
  3. Be cautious and consistent. Make sure you report ALL symptoms after you are in an accident. Any new symptom since the accident occurred should be documented and checked out by a doctor. Being consistent with this will help to prove all of your injuries later on.
  4. Be specific. During diagnosis and later on, you’ll be asked to describe your pain. You need to be specific with this, as it can help a doctor diagnose your injuries AND you will probably be asked this question during a deposition. Some examples of pain descriptions include:
  • Dull
  • Aching
  • Sharp
  • Intense
  • Numb
  • Tingly
  • Stabbing
  • Constant
  1. Hire a personal injury lawyer. Chances are, you’ve never been through this before. A personal injury lawyer has. He or she can give you the best advice out there and explain the claim process to you. Unless you are a personal injury lawyer yourself, hiring a lawyer will give you more information, someone to answer your questions, someone who knows what they’re doing, and someone who will stand by you through this difficult time.

These are my top tips for documenting your pain accurately and thoroughly to ensure that you can make the best case possible when it comes time for negotiation or taking your case to court. Following these tips won’t guarantee success, but they will certainly help you in your personal injury case. If you are interested in hiring a personal injury lawyer, you can contact me.
