3 ways to document your injuries after an auto accident

After you’re involved in a car crash, one of the things you need to do is document your injuries. There are many ways that you can document the injuries that you have suffered, such as taking photos, keeping medical documents and keeping notes. You may be able to make a personal injury claim after you’re hurt in a crash, so having good documentation will go a distance in helping you get as much compensation as possible.

There are a few different ways that you can document your injuries to make your injuries more obvious to those who are reviewing your claim. Here are three that you should keep in mind as you go through your recovery.

  1. Taking photos

The first way to document injuries is by taking photographs. When you are injured, take photos of the initial injuries (when possible) and also photos throughout your recovery. This will help show the severity of the injuries overall.

  1. Keeping track of medical documents

The next thing to do is to keep track of your medical documents. For example, you may want to keep a folder of test results and diagnostic paperwork. These helpful documents will make it easier for you or your attorney to give the other party’s insurance details about your wounds.

  1. Keeping notes

Thirdly, you can keep personal notes on your recovery. While photos and videos are good for showing the state you’re in within that moment, your personal notes can talk more about how your recovery is going. Keeping notes may also help show your mental health status, which could assist in seeking compensation for post-traumatic stress disorder or other mental health concerns.

Good documentation will help you as you build your claim

These are three ways to document your injuries following an auto accident. With the right documentation, it may be easier to make your case and seek the compensation that you need. Good documentation will make it easier for your attorney to build a case and for you to show the other party that you’ve been injured badly enough to seek the kinds of compensation that you are.
