Thinking About a Personal Injury Lawsuit? What to Know to Get Started

Accidents happen all the time in St. Louis. There are car accidents, truck accidents, dog bites, slips and falls, and a myriad of others. The best thing to do if you're a victim is to file a personal injury lawsuit. But what does that entail, and how do you even get started? This is information you need to know. 

Your First Steps After an Injury

The very first thing you need to do after you're injured as the result of an accident is to get medical attention. You may not think you need it, but there are issues that can lie dormant for days, weeks or even months. A doctor will be able to explain your injuries to you and give you the treatment you need. 

Once you get treatment, the next goal will be to gather as much evidence as possible. This might include:

– Eye witness testimonies

– Pictures

– Written accounts

– Documentation of lost wages

– Medical bills
