Consult with an experienced injury attorney.

Consider hiring a personal injury lawyer to represent you. They understand the laws and the injury claims process, allowing them to use their experience to your advantage. A good lawyer can even help you further when it comes to documenting personal injury expenses. This way you can focus on healing rather than negotiating.


When dealing with a personal injury claim, you may be asked about prior medical conditions and current medical care. These are used to help establish damages. You may also be asked for details about how the accident happened, what you did and your current situation. Anything related to your health is fair game, including your medical history. You should not answer any questions without your attorney’s permission. Your attorney can also advise you on how to best deal with doctors and insurance company representatives.
