Documenting an Accident
After an accident, the most important thing anyone can do is ensure they receive the medical treatment they need. This is why you should always call 911 and request emergency services to arrive at the scene. However, once you do, you should ensure that you take pictures of the scene of the accident and the damage it caused. You should also ensure you receive the contact information of anyone who witnessed your accident. After being treated in a hospital, you should make sure that you keep a copy of any medical documentation pertaining to your injuries, as well as all medical bills stemming from your injury. We can use these to help demonstrate both the origin and extent of your injury in your personal injury claim. Finally, you should reach out to an experienced Sacramento personal injury lawyer who can gather and present all additional evidence needed to satisfy the burden of proof on your behalf. For example, in some cases, your attorney may be able to subpoena surveillance footage of an accident, which can be the most efficient way to prove a personal injury claim.
Recovering Financial Compensation
As long as our firm can prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence, you should receive the financial compensation you deserve and need to heal. This compensation should help you cope with the economic and non-economic damages you’ve sustained. Some examples of economic damages are lost wages, the cost of medical care, damaged property, and more. Some examples of non-economic damages can include pain and suffering, the loss of enjoyment of life, loss of consortium, and more.
