What Should I Do Immediately After Contacting an Albuquerque Catastrophic Injury Attorney?
Once you have contacted a lawyer experienced in handling catastrophic or serious personal injury claims, you should try to:
- Keep and organize all letters, medical bills, discharge summaries from the hospital, insurance statements, receipts and expenses related to your injuries and out-of-pocket expenses.
- Document anything from the accident that you are able to. Whether this is taking pictures of your injuries- remember to photograph the injuries when they are at their worst but also while they are healing to show changes in bruises and cuts, permanent scarring, etc. to photographs of your car and the scene of the accident. Keep a record for anything that you think is related to your injuries.
- Write a journal and address it to your attorney so that you can keep track of what has happened each day. This can help you remember the severity of your injuries and how the injuries have affected your life because these facts and information will be needed in the future to help prove your claim.
These are general tips for immediate actions. Keep in mind the most important thing is to discuss this with a catastrophic injury attorney. I am honored to have been rated by other attorneys in New Mexico as well as judges to have the highest legal ability and highest ethical standards through an AV rating by Martindale Hubbell. I am happy to discuss your claims in person in a no pressure environment.
