It is very important that you do your best to document the details of your injury incident, including names, addresses, phone numbers and, in case of automobile accidents, insurance names and policy numbers from others involved, witnesses and police officers, including their report numbers. Keep records of where and how the accident happened, including the weather and time of day. Take pictures of the injuries, property damage, and several views where the accident happened. These details could make the difference in your recovery.
The statutes of limitations vary by state. These determine the amount of time allowed to file a Personal Injury lawsuit. The importance of contacting a competent Personal Injury attorney that has experience with your type of case as soon as possible after an injury or accident cannot be stressed enough. Missing the deadline my cause your claim to be dismissed.
If the lawsuit or settlement is successful, the liable party and their insurance carrier may be responsible for medical expenses, income lost, permanent physical disability or disfigurement, emotional damages (such as stress, embarrassment, depression and other conditions), damage to property, and possibly the loss of family, social and educational experiences and more. Damages received for these items, or the money intended to restore the victim to the position they were in before the injury, are not considered taxable income by the federal or state governments.
