After a Personal Injury Accident

Get Help from a Skilled Personal Injury Lawyer in Fresno

After suffering a personal injury in an accident caused by someone else, you may be uncertain as to what you should do next. At Sawl Law Group, we understand the shock and trauma of the event you've experience, but we also encourage you to act soon. The longer you wait to hire a lawyer and take legal action against a liable party, the worse your chances become of obtaining maximum compensation. Contact a Fresno personal injury attorney from our firm today for the counsel and guidance you need.

Steps to Take After an Accident

The first thing you should always do after an accident is to seek medical attention, even if you don't think you're injured. Shock can dull your ability to sense injury, and symptoms of some injuries may not surface for days, weeks or months anyway. Seeing a doctor immediately after an accident will help you determine whether or not you have been injured and need to file a lawsuit or claim.

You should also be sure to keep detailed records of all your injury-related expenses after an accident. Keep all medical bills, doctors' notes, diagnoses, etc. in a file so that you can easily supply them to your attorney. The court will require these records as evidence in order to establish liability and to grant you the compensation you need. Also, keep a detailed record of your medical mileage (the distance traveled to and from doctors' visits, therapy sessions, etc.). You could be compensated for this if you have adequate records available.

Along with these steps, be sure to hire an attorney right away! It is possible for a person to represent themselves in court, but only a personal injury lawyer will have the training, knowledge and experience to properly build, present and argue your case so that you receive the highest amount of compensation. At Sawl Law Group, we give our full dedication and energy to each case and could fight for maximum recovery on your behalf.
