Video – Attorney Spencer Freeman Explains What You Should Do First For A Personal Injury Claim, Legally Speaking, Right After Getting Injured

Ray Hrdlicka – Host – Attorneys.Media

“Questions that people have in their mind. When they first get injured…maybe not after that exact moment, but when they get home, when they realize, wait a minute…I have to do something. What should they do? From a legal point of view, what should they do first?”

Spencer Freeman – Personal Injury Attorney – Pierce County, WA

“Right after, let’s say, a car accident?”

Ray Hrdlicka – Host – Attorneys.Media

“Yes. Well, car accident, or a slip and fall, or any type of injury where they’re going to think about…I need to do something to get better.”

Spencer Freeman – Personal Injury Attorney – Pierce County, WA

“Well, the first thing that everybody should do is seek the medical attention they need. If there’s an emergent thing, you know you’ve got a shattered ankle or something, you need to go get it…make sure you’ve got the medical attention you need. The second thing after that is making sure that you properly document the at-fault party. If you’re in a car accident, like in today’s world, everybody’s got their camera on their phone. Take a picture of the other persons driver’s license and their insurance. Take a picture of their license plate. Take a picture of the damage to the cars to document the actual incident. If you’re at a slip and fall, and it’s a premise liability case, make sure that you get the names of witnesses that are there. Make sure you keep record of when it happened, how it happened, and the location that it occurred. That stuff is going to be the basis of building a claim later. As your attorney, I’ve got to know who to go after.”
