Spinal cord injuries are often detrimental to other areas of your health, and can leave you suffering for an extended period of time. This is why it is vital to seek medical attention immediately after suffering an injury. Even if you believe the injury to be minor, spinal cord injuries are not always apparent to the eye, and tend to worsen over time.
After seeking medical attention, be sure to also report the accident to local authorities and property owners. By completing an official police report and gathering witnesses, this can help you obtain the compensation you deserve later on, whether through pre-trial litigation or in court.
Another important step to take after suffering a spinal cord injury is documenting the scene. Whether the injury was caused by a car accident, physical altercation, or other form of accident, it is vital to take photos of the area. This can assist attorneys with assessing the scene and understanding the events that led up to the accident.
These photos are also important if you experienced any other property damage.
You’ll also want to ensure that you obtain copies of all medical bills associated with the injury. Again, this is crucial in obtaining financial compensation from responsible parties.
