Steps to take after you’ve been hurt

If you've been injured in an accident, whether you fell on someone else's property or were hurt in a car accident, it's important for you to keep your head. There are some essential steps you can take that can help if you need to collect compensation for your injuries.

Inspect the area and attempt to find out what caused your accident. If you have a camera or cellphone camera, take a photo of the areas and any injuries or bruises. Write down the names, telephone numbers, and the addresses of any witnesses. Be sure to note the date, time, and location of where you fell. If the incident occurred in a business, be sure to have the on-duty manager fill out an accident report and get a copy for yourself.

It will be quite difficult to assert a claim for injuries and pain and suffering without proper medical documentation, and a delay in seeking treatment may hurt your claim, not to mention you may aggravate an injury by not immediately seeking medical help.

Car accidents and lost wages

Vehicle crashes cost more than the price of repairs. Without a vehicle to get you to work, you could lose days or weeks of wages you depend upon to feed and protect your family. In most cases you can be reimbursed for your lost wages.

If you’ve been hurt in an accident, let a proven Dallas personal injury attorney such as David Leon get you the reimbursement and compensation you deserve. Contact him and stop worrying about how you’ll take care of your family.

Slip & fall accidents

Slip and fall, or trip and fall, are the generic terms for injuries that occur as a result of dangerous or hazardous conditions on someone else's property.

Here are some common causes of slip and fall accidents:

  • Water, ice, or snow that was not naturally accumulated
  • Flooring level
  • Poor lighting
  • Lack of handrail where required
  • Hidden hazards such as torn carpeting, loose tiles, or cracked pavement

Property owners are responsible for injuries that occur as a result of dangerous conditions on their property, which the owner either knew about or should have known about. The length of time that the dangerous condition existed is also important.   

Why you need an attorney for your accident injuries

Your lawyer’s job is to get you the fair value for your car, get you a fair amount of money to help you with your medical treatment, and to get you fair compensation for your damages and lost wages. Bills tend to pile up, as do the wages you may lose after missing work because of your accident injuries. An attorney can hep 

Keep in mind that the insurance adjuster’s job is to save the insurance corporation money, not to maximize the amount they pay you. An attorney also can deal with your insurance company for you. If your car was damaged in an accident, you may have a difficult time reaching your insurance policy provider. This is a common complaint. 

In addition to your injury claim, an attorney can assist you with the property damage portion of your case at no cost to you. This includes getting the car repaired or getting the fair market value of your car in the event that it is totaled. In many cases, they can assist you in getting you a rental car reimbursement.
