How to File a Personal Injury Claim

A severe personal injury is not something you plan for. Out of nowhere, you may find yourself dealing with catastrophic trauma after a car accident, fall, workplace incident or other event. It’s not always easy to figure out what to do next.

The experienced, compassionate lawyers at Whetstone Perkins & Fulda are here to help you move forward. Although each person’s circumstances will differ, here is how things usually go:

  • First, make sure you get the medical care you need. Your health and wellness is the priority. Serious injuries don’t always cause symptoms immediately; it’s important to be checked out by your doctor even if you think you are fine. After visiting your doctor, follow all of their recommendations for treatment. Keep records of this treatment and the costs.
  • Contact our law firm. We provide a free consultation, so there is no risk and no cost in calling us to find out if you have a case. After learning more about the circumstances of your injury, our attorneys will be able to describe all of your options, which may include pursuing maximum compensation in a claim handled by our law firm.
  • Keep a journal listing important events. These notes may prove helpful to the investigation of your case. Write down your memory of how the injury occurred and what took place afterward. Write down dates, times and locations of appointments with your doctors, as well as notes about the treatments you received. It’s also a good idea to jot down how your injuries are progressing and impacting your daily life.
  • Take care of yourself, while we focus on pursuing justice on your behalf. Serious injuries are not only painful, but also emotionally draining. Focus on getting well and getting better. We will manage your case competently, tirelessly and efficiently. You can rely on us for open and honest communication, so you will know what is happening every step of the way.
