Detail the injuries you suffered clearly. Go over everything that happened to you, whether you broke an arm or just got a cut. Be sure to account for all related aches and bruises that don’t show themselves until days following the injury. You should think about your mental state as well. For example, take note of any fears about driving in the future.
Start a file of all hospital and doctor records your receive concerning your injury. Have the notes your doctor writes for you relating to your case, the bills from the hospital, and any other medical supplies you have to purchase. If your doctor e mails you, be sure to save a copy. Make sure you document your personal injury to prepare for legal action by taking plenty of pictures from every angle possible. If you cannot take your own photos, ask someone in your family or a friend to take them. Do this right away.
