It’s easy to get overwhelmed by all the paperwork after an accident that has left you or a loved one injured.
From medical records to insurance documents, there’s a lot of information you need to keep track of that could prove crucial to your case.
Keep Detailed Records
In order to maintain an accurate account of the injuries and pain you have experienced, it’s important to keep detailed notes on the following in order to be properly compensated later:
- Lost work time and wages
- Pain and suffering
- Expenses that originated directly from the accident, such as medical bills, diagnostic testing, transportation, home care and car repairs
- Any physical limitations you may have
Why Clear, Accurate Record-Keeping is Important
Yes, the paperwork can seem daunting, but keeping clear, accurate records will only help you in the end. In fact, your ability to maintain accurate records can make or break your case, going a long way toward preserving the value of your damages.
Other important documents to keep on hand include:
- Copies of checks and receipts
- Out-of-pocket expenses including medication, doctor and hospital expenses, transportation, medical devices (crutches, wheelchairs, bandages, splints, etc.) and chiropractic care.
These documents, as well as the above notes, will be very helpful later on when you are asked to recall your pain and physical disabilities resulting from the accident.
