If you have recently suffered a personal injury, you know how scary and overwhelming it can feel. The physical effects can be very unpleasant to deal with, especially if it is a pharmaceutical related injury, like the recent testosterone supplement lawsuits. To make matters worse, if you are like most of us, navigating the legal system and knowing what to expect from your personal injury case can be very confusing!

When in a car accident, write down what happened as soon as you are safe to do so. For example, what you were doing when it happened, how you are hurt, what damage there is to your car, what damage there is to the other car, and what you think caused the accident or how the other driver was at fault.

Get out of your vehicle and take photographs of the scene from several different angles. You should take pictures of your vehicle and that of the other party. This is important since it will prove the damages were not exaggerated by you or the person you got into the accident with.

Don’t pay any money up front to a personal injury lawyer. A reputable personal injury lawyer will not require any money up front; in most cases they will offer a free consultation prior to taking your case. During this consultation be sure to ask them about exactly what you will be charged (whether it’s a flat fee or an hourly rate), and if they offer some sort of payment plan.

Hire a lawyer located where the court your personal injury trial will be playing out is located. This ensures they can easily get to the court for your dates, plus they know the local laws and understand them to a “T”. They may also be familiar with the judges and their personalities, which can benefit your case.

Hire a lawyer as soon as possible. If you have been injured, try to start the process of locating a lawyer within a week or two at most. If you have been hospitalized, or are otherwise too injured to do the work yourself, enlist the help of a friend or family member. A lawyer is your best bet for a successful personal injury claim outcome.

Suffering a personal injury is never a pleasant experience. While you cannot change what has happened to you, you nevertheless can educate yourself on the important facts about personal injury law to make your legal experience as tolerable and seamless as possible. You have been through enough already, after all!
