Car Accident - KentuckyYou have been involved in a vehicle accident and suffered injuries. You want to seek a personal injury attorney to see what your options are. Well here are three ways that can help you increase the chance of winning your personal injury lawsuit.

1) Start by seeking immediate medical attention

Have your injuries treated by the doctor. Be honest with what you feel and reveal all discomfort or difficulties you are experiencing due to the accident. It is necessary to seek prompt medical assistance or else the insurance company of the driver at fault may use your delay of treatment as a defense. The insurer may claim that the vehicle accident was not the proximate cause of your injuries and such delay or lack of treatment might be used against you.

2) Present strong pieces of evidence

If you want to clearly establish the fault of the negligent driver, what you need are strong pieces of evidence. Such gathering of evidence can be done during or after the accident. If at the time of the accident, you can still physically manage to collect evidence, do so; but if not, have someone else to do it. As much as possible, secure the names and contact details of potential witnesses.Know the driver’s license plate and other information about his identity. Using your camera phone or digital camera, take photos of the accident scene, vehicle damage, and injuries suffered.

Once you receive medical attention, make sure to retain all payment receipts you have made, doctor notes, as well as other expenses you have incurred because of the accident. These may be in the form of loss of income, costs of transportation, and additional assistance at home.

3) Communicate with a lawyer, not with the driver’s insurance company

Instead of communicating directly with the driver’s insurer, it is better to schedule a free consultation with a personal injury lawyer. In doing the former, you might lose the chance of having a viable legal claim for compensatory damages. It is best to consult a lawyer who is experienced and has a proven track record and reputation in dealing with personal injury cases.

The job of a lawyer is to develop the legal strategy, deal with the insurance company, manage the claim process and conduct settlement negotiations so you can focus on recovering from your injuries and go on with your life.

An experienced personal injury lawyer can definitely help you with this legal process. And with your cooperation, the chance of winning the case increases.
