A personal injury suit stems from any incident in which fatal, physical, and/or emotional injuries are suffered by an individual. This can include a vehicular crash, slip and fall, dog bite, food poisoning, use of defective products, and so on.

In a personal injury suit, economic damages, including past and future medical bills, property damage, and past and future income. Non-economic damages such as pain and suffering can also be recovered.

If involved in a car crash, you should obtain the name, address, driver’s license number, insurance and vehicle information of the other drafter, even if you are not experiencing any pain. Remember, often a person will not experience pain due to an endorphin released in the body. If injured in a fall, you should discover the cause and take pictures, if possible. You should also report the incident to the proper person, like the manager.

You shouldn’t speak about the cause to anyone. Anything you say to any person besides your lawyer is generally not privileged and discoverable.

Seek medical care as soon as possible as early treatment will benefit you and your cause.

Don’t feel guilty or embarrassed that you have filed a personal injury suit, as it is the best method of protecting yourself.
