Jotting down notes may help you following a car wreck

Your day is starting out on the right foot: You got eight hours of sleep last night, you have a perfectly brewed coffee in hand, and you are making excellent timing on your commute to work. However, all of a sudden, a negligent driver runs his car directly into yours, leaving you with injuries and a great deal of anxiety.

If someone has injured you in a car wreck in Florida due to negligent driving, you have the right to seek justice. To give yourself the best chance of protecting your best interests, you may want to write down notes as soon as you can, following the accident.

Tips for notetaking following an injury accident

When writing down notes about the accident that caused your injuries, the most important question to answer is what happened during the crash. For example, you can write down the place and time of the accident, the weather conditions at the time and how the accident played out. Other potentially valuable details to record include who was present at the time of the accident and what they said.

Then, it may behoove you to explain in detail what type of harm you suffered as a result of the collision. This includes describing how your injuries have impacted your daily life. For instance, did they prevent you from being able to return to work for a certain period of time? Other specific details that might be worth writing down include what type of medical treatment you had to receive, including physical therapy and how much this treatment cost.

Your rights following an accident leading to your injuries

Jotting down notes might not be at the top of your priority list following a traumatic accident stemming from a negligent driver, especially if it caused you injury. However, the more detailed notes you take, the stronger your position will be if you decide to file a personal injury claim against the other driver, seeking damages.

A successfully fought claim might lead to a monetary damage award that may help you to cover your medical bills and other losses tied to the car wreck. No amount of money can undo the events leading to an injury-causing crash. However, a damage award may help you to more easily move forward from such a painful ordeal.
