27 Aug Documentation is key to your injury claim.
In a personal injury case, documentation is important. Take photos of your injuries. Also, include recent photos of yourself taken before the injuries occurred. Keep a journal about your injuries and medical attention. Be precise about everything, including the daily extent of your pain. Even the smallest of points is significant information.
Keep a file of every form of correspondence with every involved medical person relating to your injury, including e-mails. Save all of your medical-related receipts. This includes prescriptions, special equipment (crutches, walkers, canes), special foods, and co-payments.
Don’t forget to document any travel expenses for your medical appointments. Maintain documentation on how much income you’ve lost due to your injuries.
