Over this blog series we will outline some of the key stages of a personal injury case so you can understand the complexity, and the value of engaging a Folsom personal injury attorney to represent you.

Medical Care

Always seek medical care right away for your injuries.  This is not only critical to your wellness, but it is also important to your personal injury claim.

Make sure to document all stages of medical care.  These include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Emergency Room visit
  • Diagnosis
  • Medications prescribed
  • Treatment
  • X-rays, MRIs, cat-scans
  • Physical Therapy
  • Surgery

Don’t forget to record your medical costs and expenses incurred.  This information will be important for your personal injury attorney in dealing with the insurance companies on your behalf.

Lost Wages

For example, if you have to take time off work, write day how many days you take off, and note your work hours, income, and any other economic losses you suffer. Your Folsom personal injury lawyer will ensure your lost wages from the accident are incorporated into your personal injury case.
