Personal injury law, like all other areas of law, is quite complex. An experienced personal injury attorney can help you understand the legal process, protect your rights, and get financial compensation for your injuries. The statute of limitations for wrongful death cases is two years from the date of your loved one’s death.

Many different types of accidents and events cause personal injury, but regardless of the cause, if you or your loved one suffers harm because of the actions of someone else, you can do a few things right away to help strengthen your claim:

  1. If possible, photograph any evidence of importance to the event. You might take pictures of visible injuries or damages to your vehicle in the case of auto accidents.
  2. Obtain the contact information of anyone who may have witnessed the action.
  3. Write as many details as possible about the event. Be sure to include how you were injured, what happened immediately afterwards, and what the long-term results were, including lost wages or continuing medical treatment.
  4. Note any conversations you had with anyone else involved in the accident, as well as any police or doctor’s reports.

Personal injuries can cause permanent disabilities, financial damage, and a greatly reduced quality of life. Lawsuits cannot repair the harm you may have suffered, but they can help you obtain better medical treatment and provide security for you and your family.
