Keep Good Records If You've Been In An Accident

If you’ve been in a car, slip and fall or other kind of accident, you will want to receive the maximum compensation for your injuries and losses. One way to help obtain the most compensation is to keep good records of your damages. Here are some of the key things to include in your records:
  • Details about your injuries, pain and medical treatment.

    Describe the kinds of symptoms that you experience — is the pain throbbing, shooting or continual? How does it affect your sleeping and mental state? These records will help show the nature and extent of your injuries.

  • Your out-of-pocket losses due to the accident.

    In addition to medical bills, this includes medication costs, transportation to and from health care providers and other accident related expenditures.

  • Your lifestyle changes.

    Keep track of social events you miss or other changes to your lifestyle due to the accident.

  • Your lost earnings.

    Keep track of hours missed from work and lost wages (including for part time work).

Accident claims can take time to resolve. Keeping good records of your injuries and monetary losses will help you remember the details that can significantly increase the amount of compensation you receive.
