Where you injured in a car accident or hurt while shopping in a store? If this has happened to you, there are steps you should take following the incident. This is especially true if you want to file a personal injury claim.
Personal injury claims rely heavily on evidence. Depending on the accident, you may needed different types of evidence.
For example, after an auto accident, you should contact the police so that a police report is filed. If you slipped and fell in a store due to the store's negligence, you should notify the store's manager. Doing these can help support your claim and its authenticity.
