First Steps After an Injury

Getting injured can turn your life upside down and, depending on the severity of the injury, it can be a struggle to get back to normal. Protecting your legal rights is not usually the first thing you think of in the days following an injury. However, following some simple steps can save a substantial amount of time and effort if you later decide to sue someone for your injuries. FindLaw's First Steps After an Injury section provides information about what you should do after you have suffered an injury. In this section you can find articles about how to obtain and use a police report, what to expect during your first meeting with an attorney, and what type of evidence to collect depending on your injury.
