Whether you’ve been injured in a car accident, bitten by a dog, or were hurt at a local business, the law states that you are eligible to recover damages. Unfortunately, many people don’t know how to take the next step and ultimately get that other person to pay the damages due to cover things like medical expenses, lost wages, and ongoing care.


Here are a few basic steps you should take if you incur an injury due to the negligence of another:

  • The first step is to identify the person who caused your injury. If you are in an automobile collision, call the police if you think you are hurt or your property has been damaged so you can get the collision documented, be examined by a paramedic, and be sent to the hospital, if needed. If you are bitten by a dog, learn the owner’s name and address. If you slip and fall at a retail store, report the injury to management, insist that they make a report, and ask that they provide you with a copy! The best lawyer in the world can’t recover your damages if they don’t know from whom to seek a recovery.

  • Above all, the most important step when injured is to seek medical attention immediately or just as soon as it is practical. If your injuries are critical, do not hesitate to get yourself to the nearest ER. Even if you are unsure how severely you are injured, it may be wise to go there any way or schedule an appointment with your primary care physician as soon as possible. Urgent care clinics are another good option to document your injuries, initially. It is always better to be safe than sorry when it comes to your health, and it is critical to have your initial injuries well documented to establish the basis of your damages.
