The top things to do if you've been hurt by another's negligence

Posted by Robert Scott | Jan 01, 2023 | 0 Comments

If you've been hurt by a person or a business' negligence, here are the top things you should do:

  1. If you need medical care, get it ASAP.
  2. Get the contact information for the person or business that hurt you.
  3. Get their insurance information if you can.
  4. If you have insurance that you think might cover your injuries, contact your insurer ASAP and report the accident to them.
  5. If there is a police report, request it ASAP.
  6. Contact a lawyer ASAP. It's possible to resolve the case on your own, but having a lawyer usually will speed up resolution of the claim.

Please contact me if you have any questions about a personal injury claim.
