Steps to Take After Suffering a Bone Fracture
As an accident victim, there are things you can do and steps you can take to protect yourself after an accident, but it’s crucial to do them sooner rather than later. Waiting too long to take action can prolong a lawsuit and hurt your odds of compensation. After you break a bone or think you’ve broken a bone in an accident, here are three important steps to take:
- Don’t admit fault. Whether you were in a car accident, workplace accident, construction accident, slip and fall, or pedestrian collision, do not admit fault. Request medical attention for your injuries, give any responding police officers your side of the story, and wait for an investigation to assign fault.
- Go to the hospital and keep your medical records. It’s hard to refute a broken bone injury during a claim when x-ray images show the break in black and white. It’s important to seek medical attention right away after an accident and to keep copies of x-ray images and other tests that show the fracture.
- Call Cruz & Associates. Arming yourself with an attorney right from the start can ensure you don’t do anything that could harm your chances of compensation, such as forget to call your insurance company or agree to release a statement to a claims adjuster.
