If you’ve been injured by negligence or by an unreasonably dangerous product, first and foremost, get prompt and good medical treatment. See your family physician or go to the emergency room. If you have an attorney, ask for a recommendation. Follow these rules when seeking help for injuries that may involve a personal injury claim: 1) Go to a doctor who will voluntarily testify to the truth of your injuries and treatment if asked. Some doctors just will not do that for their patients. 2) Be absolutely truthful. 3) Cover everything (give examples of how your injuries are affecting you). 4) Tell your doctor about conditions caused by the accident and about previous conditions that have been aggravated by the accident.
