If you have been injured in an automobile accident, there are actions you can take that will make it easier for your personal injury attorney to obtain the best financial recovery on your behalf, including the following:

OBTAIN INSURANCE INFORMATION. Your personal injury attorney will want to know whether the other, negligent driver has the financial means to compensate you for your injuries. Usually the police will obtain the information pertaining to insurance of the parties involved in a car accident, but it is best to err on the side of caution and to also take steps to obtain this information as well from the other driver.
TAKE PHOTOS. Take pictures of the damage to your car, the place where the accident happened and your personal injury. This will provide important evidence which your personal injury attorney can use to prove your claim. Bring these photos to your appointment with your automobile accident lawyer.
LOST WAGES. Keep a record of missed work and lost wages caused by the auto accident.
MEDICAL TREATMENT. Seek medical treatment for your injury if you believe it is necessary. Keep all appointments with your doctor.
KEEP A JOURNAL. Keeping a diary that chronicles how your life has been impacted by the car accident may also be helpful.
WITNESSES. Your personal injury attorney will also want to know about the witnesses to the car accident. Make sure you have the name, address, and phone number of any witnesses to your accident and share them with your personal injury lawyer.
CAR REPAIR. Make sure the damage to your car has been recorded in a photograph before it is fixed.
BE WARY OF TALKING TO AN ADJUSTER. Generally, do not talk to the insurance adjuster until your personal injury attorney has advised you to do so.
