Injured in a Missouri Car Accident? Take Notes

Categorized as Auto Accidents

Car accidents are almost always a traumatizing experience, especially if you have suffered an injury. Your life is turned upside down and it’s difficult to determine what your next move should be.

When the dust settles, take a moment to write down everything you can remember about the accident, especially if you are filing a claim with your insurance company. When memories go blurry and facts are skewed months down the line, you’ll be grateful to have notes from the moment of the accident and the days following.

If you have been injured in an accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. The auto accident attorneys at Peterson & Associates, P.C.™have years of experience working with the injured and we are ready to help you get the compensation you deserve.

Below are several important things you should take note of if you have been injured in an auto accident.

  • The Accident: Record everything you can remember about the moments leading up to the accident and the accident itself. Include who you were with, where you were going, what the weather was like, who was around you, and what you felt during the accident.
  • Your Injuries: Make note of any pains and discomfort you may experience in the days immediately following the accident. Any anxiety, loss of sleep or emotional discomfort are also important to include. Small pains can develop into more severe injuries over time, so record them early for evidence as to what caused the injury.
  • Economic or Other Losses: You may also be entitled to compensation for economic, social, family, educational and other losses, so keep detailed documentation of any events, meetings and classes that you miss because of your injuries.
  • Conversations: Keep track of everyone you speak with in relation to the accident, including the date, time, name of the person and what you talked about.

The experienced team of attorneys at Peterson & Associates offer complimentary reviews of claims for the injured. If you have been hurt in an auto accident, we will discuss your circumstances and make sure that you receive the compensation that you deserve for your injuries.
