What should I do if I have been injured?
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury caused by someone else’s negligence, the actions you take immediately after the incident could potentially affect your life in the future. While each incident is different, there are general considerations. You should first seek medical attention. If the incident involves something like medical malpractice, calling 911 may not be an option. If calling 911 is not appropriate, you should take every step to document the negligence that has occurred either to family members or through other doctors. This documentation may include requesting any witness names (and their contact information) and incident reports. If possible, you should also take photos of the scene – even if you only have a cell phone camera. You should also seek competent professional advice as soon as possible to help determine if you have a personal injury claim. The Law Office of George J. Nelson has extensive experience in investigating personal injury claims, and can help determine if you have a valid claim, and if you do, who is the responsible party and what compensation may be available to you.
