As soon as an accident happens, you should keep your rights in mind. Even an injury that does not seem bad immediately after the accident, can later develop into a more serious injury than you could have anticipated. According to Los Angeles lawyer Gabriel H. Avina, starting immediately after an accident, there are a number of steps you can take to preserve your personal injury claim:
1. As required in all traffic accidents, exchange information with the other parties involved in the accident.
2. Use a cellphone or other camera to take photos to document your injuries or property damage.
3. Consult a doctor.
4. Consult an attorney to get personalized advice that specifically fits the facts of your accident and your personal injury claim.
Gabriel H. Avina not only has helped numerous clients involved in auto accidents successfully recover so that they are compensated for their personal injuries, but he has litigated his own personal injury. Gabriel understands the challenges and concerns that arise as both a personal injury lawyer and a personal injury plaintiff.
