Why Should I Document My Injuries?

The personal injury claim process is highly dependent on your injuries. The claim timeline will follow your recovery, and the compensation you receive will reflect the nature and extent of your injuries. You should document your injuries as best you can to ensure your claim settlement is fair.

Your medical records will play a large part in your settlement, but it is not uncommon for an insurance adjuster to request more information regarding your injuries if your doctor’s notes are vague or insufficient. As well, it can be difficult to reflect back on your injuries later on when more information is requested. The better you document your injuries, the stronger your claim will be.

Take pictures of your injuries as soon as you can, and continue to do so as they heal. Keep an injury log of your recovery noting the pain or discomfort you experience, the treatments you undergo, and what you and your doctor have discussed. Also, be sure to take notes on how your injuries affect you on a day-to-day basis. If you suffered a permanent disability, for example, you should document how that disability has affected your work, relationships, or family responsibilities.

Along with the compensation for your economic losses, you may receive compensation for your non-economic losses. These losses constitute your pain and suffering. Pain and suffering is an important part of many personal injury claims. Your personal documentation of your injuries can go a long way toward establishing an accurate pain and suffering value that is fair given your losses.

Consult with an experienced Georgia personal injury attorney if you have questions about what you can do to strengthen your claim. An attorney can advise you on what you need to be doing to ensure you are fairly compensated for all your losses. It is always best to take all the right steps from the beginning of your case to ensure you can settle as soon as you are ready to and that the insurance company will have all the information they need. To do this, speak to an attorney about the personal injury claims process.

Chris Smith

Tom did an excellent job setting up my LLC for my new business recently. I was in a situation where I needed the LLC formed quickly and Tom and his team were able to work on a very short deadline. Highly recommended!

GAAW Wright

Tom has been our attorney for many years. He has been with us through thick and thin. He has successfully handled all our queries and cases with patience and understanding. We highly recommend Tom!

Corey Rennolds

At all times for the duration of my case, Tom demonstrated professionalism, confidence, and honesty. At no point was I pressured to make any one decision over another, but Tom did his best to inform me about the consequences and benefits of all of my options. If he did not know some specific detail regarding my case, he made the effort to find out. Tom instantly exudes trustworthiness and was always in steady contact. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Justina Allen

I met Tom over 10 years ago after settling in Roswell with my family. I have learned over the years that Tom is a man of high integrity, genuine and extremely knowledgeable in his field. Along with being honest, he is a straight shooter and will let you know where you stand. He will provide you with personal attention you don’t get at bigger firms and will go the extra mile. As legal matters can be frightening to deal with, Tom will guide you through the process and get you the results you need.
