You have suffered a serious injury. You’re asking yourself, “What should I do now?” When our clients first call us, many of them don’t know what they should do after being injured. Your health should be your first priority. Seek medical care immediately either with your personal doctor, an urgent care or a hospital emergency room. If you were hurt while working, be sure to report the injury or incident right away. If you were hurt in a car accident, consider agreeing to the ambulance transport to the nearest emergency room depending on the severity of your injuries.
After your medical care, you should contact an attorney right away. You must be very careful whom you speak with and what you say about your injury and the incident. Insurance companies could be calling you or their attorneys may call you. They will want your statement about the accident. You may have to prepare a statement to your employer of how you were injured. What you tell them could be unfavorable to your case. We want to work with you and help you from the very beginning to ensure that you don’t unknowingly jeopardize your claim.
If you have been injured through the negligence of another person or a company, you have the right to seek appropriate compensation. Our work injury lawyers will sit down with you and listen to you. We will explain what your legal options are and gather the necessary evidence needed to prove your case. We believe that the only way to win a case is to prepare that case for trial and fight for your rights in court, if necessary.
