Is There Anything I Can Do to Help My Cleveland Personal Injury Case? October 21, 2012.
If you’ve been injured in a motor vehicle accident or as a result of a medical mistake, write down every detail you can remember as soon as possible. Some of that information will fade in time. Photos can become critical pieces of evidence, so be sure to take pictures of injuries, damaged vehicles, or the layout of the accident scene.
Be sure to collect any paperwork related to your accident and injuries. This could include the accident report, medical records, and insurance information. An attorney can tell you what else you will need to build a strong case.
With that in mind, consult an attorney who can guide you in what to do next and determine whether you have a claim worth pursuing. If you don’t know any lawyers, request Chris Mellino’s free guide to filing a claim in Ohio. He not only offers tips to find a good advocate, he suggests what questions you should ask anyone you consider hiring for your case.
Finally, keep all of your doctor appointments and follow the treatment plan he or she recommends. Showing up late or missing appointments (even for a valid reason) can look bad if your case goes to trial. The last thing you want is for jurors to wonder if you’re as injured as you claim.
