Injuries can be devastating. They can completely change a person’s life and the lives of everyone who knows the injured person. Calculating just how much any particular personal injury claim is worth can be difficult and complicated.
Each state has its own laws and regulations when it comes to adjudicating a claim for personal injury. In California, many nuanced laws must be navigated while working through personal injury law. That’s why it is crucial to get a ballpark idea of what your claim might be worth and find an experienced attorney who knows California laws thoroughly.
How Do I Prepare For Making a Claim?
It’s always a good idea to get in touch with an experienced lawyer as soon as possible, but you can do some other things to make sure your case goes as smoothly as possible.
- Keep all your medical records
- Make a list of all property damage or loss you have suffered
- Keep receipts for everything you spend related to your accident
- Pay attention to expenses that are out of the ordinary and caused by your injury
- Keep a journal of your emotional health
- Track your sleep and how your injury has interfered with it
- Record every time your injury interferes with your daily routine
