If you have been seriously injured due to the fault of another, it is critically important for you to take the following steps as soon as possible. First, write down all the details of the incident that you are able to recall. Second, contact a personal injury attorney immediately. Do not speak to any insurance company representative until you have consulted with an attorney. It is not in their interest to make sure you get the full fair value of your claim.
Time is critical in all personal injury cases. The statute of limitations puts limits on the amount of time a person has to file a case. Also, the preservation of evidence is absolutely critical. It is important that witnesses be located and interviewed as early as possible, before their memory fades or something happens that causes them to be unavailable later for trial. The earlier you get an injury lawyer involved in your case, the greater the chances for a successful outcome.
