I’ve suffered an injury following an accident. What steps should I take?
Seek medical attention immediately. No matter how small or serious you believe your injury is, never put off thinking that it is not more than what it appears. Keep up with your appointments and if for any reason you cannot, make sure to notify your doctor’s office, since no-shows can be used against you in court should the case reach that stage.
Ensure that you keep up with your physical therapy sessions should you be prescribed any. Avoid cancelling any sessions unless absolutely necessary. This will help you both physically and legally. It is also advised to keep a logbook of such visits/sessions as well as any days missed.
