Four Steps You Should Take After an Injury

Accidents in the workplace happen more often than you think. The next thing you know, you might be the next victim. Under the law, you are entitled to compensation for all the costs you had to pay as part of your recovery.

Knowing what steps to take can avoid unnecessary delays and other potential issues when looking to receive fair compensation for injuries sustained due to possible negligence of another party.

Write Down What Happened

Reduce inconsistencies by writing down what happened or recording your account on video. File a police report to further ensure that there’s a record of your version of what occurred.

Get Visual Evidence

Visual evidence should include photos of your injuries along with pictures or video footage of the location where the injury occurred. An attorney can help you secure any footage that may have been captured by bystanders.

Track Medical Expenses

Even if your health insurance may cover most of your expenses, it’s important to track immediate costs. Related expenses can be determined later with assistance from an attorney.

Identify Potential Witnesses

Witnesses may be reluctant to come forward, so get as much contact information as you can from anyone who may have observed your injury. You’ll get help from an attorney with any witness interviews and statements.

Keep in mind that there is a statute of limitations, or deadline, for filing a personal injury claim in Massachusetts, which is usually three years from the time of injury.
