Delaying treatment can result in further damage and even long-term trauma. Your health is the main priority, and seeing a doctor will give you peace of mind. Ask your doctor for a medical report. This will serve as evidence in your claim.
Take photos of the safety hazard responsible for your injury, and record information of witnesses. Add any additional factors that contributed to your injury. If you experience damage to your attire, preserve them in that condition as part of your evidence.
Your medical bills from the occurrence, and any related income losses, should be documented as well. In some cases, you could get compensated for these as well.
Talk to a Legal Professional
Contact a legal professional for advice before signing any documents. An attorney or lawyer will act in your best interest and ensure that you don’t sign anything detrimental to your claim.
Once you’ve got a professional to handle your case, you can file for your claim. Handle the whole situation as quickly as possible because each state has a statute of limitations. If you wait too long, they won’t process your claim.
