What should I do if I’ve been injured and think I have a personal injury case?

Once you’ve received any immediate medical attention you need, here are two important things to do if you’ve been hurt in a car accident, slip and fall, assault, or any other type of incident where someone else caused your injury:

  • 1. It is important to document the accident and injuries. Call a police officer and get a written report. Write down any important information, including witnesses, dates, time, location, and a description of the events. Take pictures of the accident scene, if possible, as well as clear pictures and medical reports of injuries and treatments.
  • 2. Consult with a lawyer as soon as possible. A lawyer can properly discuss your case, let you know your rights, and explain everything you need to know including from whom you can seek compensation, what to expect from the insurance companies, and how to assess your damages. Most lawyers provide free consultations. If you are not comfortable with the lawyer you chose, you have no obligation to use him or her.
  • 3. Once you have a lawyer, it is important to talk to no one else. Insurance adjusters, investigators, and potential defendants might try to pressure you into making statements or signing papers. If you are contacted by any of these people, inform them that you have hired a lawyer to handle your case and if they provide their name and number you will have your attorney contact them directly.

If you have a New York personal injury case, don’t delay in seeking representation. The experienced lawyers at Goldstein and Bashner will provide a free consultation and take the time to answer any questions you have.

Goldstein and Bashner When it comes to the capacity to generate profound upheaval and anguish in the lives of those involved, almost nothing rivals a serious personal injury event stemming from the negligence of others. The physical suffering, financial pressures and family strain that so often result from such circumstances can seem insurmountable unless justice and accountability can be obtained from those responsible.
