The actions you take at the scene of any accident are of utmost importance in determining the course of your personal injury litigation.
Whether you have been injured in a car collision, a slip and fall accident, as the result of equipment failure, by a doctor's negligence or in any other way, you must during the very earliest stages take great care in everything you say and do.
Never again will your memory of the key events be as fresh as they are on the date of injury. Never again will the most crucial bits of evidence be as available. Thus, if you are able, it will be very helpful to your case to keep notes, photos, or other evidence that will trigger your memory.
Never give a recorded statement or sign anything without first consulting your attorney.
