DO's and DON'Ts

DO's

1. Seek medical attention immediately after your accident . If you were not transported to a hospital by ambulance, contact a physician in his office or emergency room as soon as possible. This cannot be over emphasized.

2. Where appropriate, call the police to investigate and:
  - Never be talked out of calling the authorities, because without a police, incident or investigative report, you may not be able to prove your case
  -Give the police or authorities your full cooperation and a full, accurate account of what happened. Never admit fault and never exaggerate!
  -Try to listen to what the other persons involved in any way in the accident or incident tells police or the authorities about what happened.

3. Cooperate with all law enforcement and emergency personnel who responded to the scene.

4. If you're your injuries resulted from an auto or motorcycle accident, get the license plate numbers of all other vehicles involved in accident and the other driver's name, addresses, telephone numbers, and insurance information.

5. Contact a qualified personal injury attorney as soon as possible following your accident. The advice you receive from a qualified attorney during you initial interview will be invaluable in resolving your case in a timely and efficient manner, and in a way which will best protect you.

6. If you have pictures or video of the accident site, be sure to bring them to your attorney.

7. Be sure to keep track of any lost days of work or any changes that were made to your schedule or work duties which were made pursuant to your injuries.

8. Save all receipts itemizing any and all expenses connected with your injuries. This includes prescription drug costs, emergency room or physician office visit co-pays or other associated costs.

DON'Ts

1. DO NOT admit fault or offer conclusions or explanations about the cause of your accident. Do not apologize for any part of the accident. It can be used later as evidence of fault.

2.  DO NOT discuss your case with any unnecessary parties. You should tell your insurance agent only what is absolutely necessary to give him/her notice of the accident and injury. Do not give recorded statements to insurance adjusters.

3. DO NOT sign any settlement offers which may be presented to you, unless instructed to do so by your attorney.

4. DO NOT wait to visit your physician if you are injured.

5. DO NOT give false or misleading statements to any physician or police officer concerning your injuries or prior injuries
