How Victims Can Protect Their Rights After an Injury

by The Beasley Firm  |  April 26, 2018  |  

After an accident, the victim must take some very important steps in order to protect their rights to seek compensation.

There are a number of things that can be done in order to help a case, and some things that can be done to hurt a case.

At The Beasley Firm, our Philadelphia personal injury attorneys make it a point to help injury victims protect their rights and know what they should and shouldn’t do after an accident. Here are some things to keep in mind with the initial shock after an accident.

Collecting Information

From medical records, police reports, insurance information, and all other information about the responsible party, it’s important to collect as much information as possible. This can all be used to help build a strong case and the evidence is crucial in obtaining justice.

Taking Pictures of the Scene, Car and Injuries

After an accident, if you are physically able to, be sure to take pictures of the scene, the damage done to the vehicle, and any potential injuries you may have sustained. This can help determine liability or fault and help the victim seek compensation.

Avoid Making Apologetic Statements

Saying things such as “I’m sorry,” “I didn’t see you there,” or “I thought I could make the light” may be seen as a potential admission of guilt. The defendant may use this against your claim in order to minimize the amount you may receive or to place fault on you completely.

Contacting an Attorney

The best way to protect your rights is to contact a lawyer who understands your rights and knows how to build a strong case on your behalf. It’s important to have strong legal counsel as the defendant is most likely to have the same.
