The Essential

Personal Injury Claim Checklist

Wondering how to begin your personal injury case?
We can help.

Focus on This List To Support Your Chances for Full and Fair Compensation.

Document Everything About the Accident

Take pictures of injuries and damage. Write down all the details you remember.

File a Police Report and Make Sure the Details Are Accurate

The insurance companies and courts rely on this document during a claim or trial.

Go to the Doctor Immediately and Often

Get medical treatment ASAP. Do not skip appointments, and make sure to follow all instructions from your doctor.

Show Medical Bills and Lost Income

These specific financial costs are a major part of your compensation. Keep records of every penny.

Take Note of Daily Pain and Suffering

Write down activities you struggle with, your level of pain, and any feelings of stress.

Limit Discussions About the Case

From talking to the insurance companies to posting online, your words can be used against you.

Negotiate a Fair Settlement

The insurance company’s first offer is almost always too low. Your lawyer can help negotiate.

Fully Heal Before Settling

Settling quickly means you risk not getting the compensation you might need in the future.

Know the Statute of Limitations

In Georgia, you have two years to file an insurance claim or lawsuit.

In South Carolina, you have three years to file a personal injury lawsuit.

Work With an Experienced Attorney

An experienced attorney like Harry Brown increases your chances for fair compensation without any out-of-pocket cost to you.
