Take Notes and Photos
Right after an accident, you will want to start the evidence-gathering process. Take photos of your injuries as well as the accident scene. Take notes of what happened before the accident. What were you doing? Where did the accident take place? Witnesses could prove helpful as well.
See a Doctor Right Away
Once you get your accident sorted out, visit a doctor as soon as you can. Even if you feel fine, you could have serious injuries and not even know it. Plus, seeing a doctor will protect your legal rights. The insurance company will assess your claim and determine whether or not you sought medical treatment in a reasonable amount of time. A reasonable timeframe is within 72 hours. If you wait any longer than that, the insurance company will claim that you were not seriously injured and may even deny your claim.

Get Medical Documentation
While seeing a doctor is critical, it is not enough. You need to ensure your doctor fully documents your injuries and condition. Some accidents cause internal injuries, so make sure you get a full workup. X-rays and scans can show broken bones and other internal injuries.
Make sure your medical record includes clear, detailed notes from your doctor. The notes should also include any treatment and recovery you will need. This may include medical devices, physical therapy, or surgeries. This will help your claim since you can receive compensation for future medical expenses.
