The Law Firm of Eric H. Weinberg can help you understand your legal rights and receive the injury compensation you deserve. But there are steps that you can take to help legal counsel represent you in the best way possible.
If you have any questions about the guidelines provided below, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Regarding Your Health:
1 - See your doctor.
If you are experiencing pain or other symptoms after an accident or injury, if you have become aware of a drug recall or information about a harmful drug, if you are experiencing symptoms of food poisoning, if you have been harmed by a defective product, or if you are concerned about physical symptoms that may be linked to an injury you suffered, you should consult with your doctor.
2 -Follow your doctor’s advice.
Your health is your doctor’s primary concern. By following your doctor’s advice, you not only show your commitment to your well-being, but you also make it possible for your doctor to develop a record of your condition. Do not miss doctor’s appointments. Do not fail to inform your doctor about your symptoms. Always be honest with your doctor; if you cannot remember something, say so.
3 -Keep track of your records.
We will ask you for contact information for all of your doctors. We will also ask you for information regarding any hospital stays, drugs taken, and medical bills. This information will help us prepare your case.
Regarding Your Information:
4 -Provide your lawyer with evidence.
Depending on the nature of your injury, we may ask you for the following information or evidence in your possession:
I -contact information for witnesses to your accident
II -photographs related to accident or injury
III -contact information for doctors and/or hospitals
IV -medical bills incurred
V -medical paraphernalia – e.g., medication bottles, etc.
VI -receipts for expenses related to injury
VII -any physical evidence (e.g., defective product, clothing or other items worn at time of accident, etc.).
5 -Keep detailed records.
It is important to keep detailed records about the following:
missed work time and compensation
expenses related to your injuries
the extent of your injury, pain and suffering, and any physical limitations.
Regarding Your Case:
· Talk to your lawyer.
Your lawyer is the best person to represent you. It is important that you do not talk to insurance companies or anyone else who asks you for a written or oral statement without first speaking to your lawyer.
· Keep yourself informed.
We are committed to keeping you up-to-date on the status of your case. But if you have questions about the timeline of your case, possible outcomes, your role in the ongoing process or any other aspect of your case, please do not hesitate to ask.
