You know that are certain calls that you have to make and certain things that you have to do after a Wisconsin motorcycle accident. You need to call your doctor, your family, your employer, and your Wisconsin motorcycle lawyer so that you can get the care that you need and make arrangements for your future.
However, did you know that there are other steps that you can take to make sure that you get the recovery that you deserve?
Three Things to Do After Every Milwaukee Motorcycle Accident
As you make important decisions in the days and weeks after your motorcycle accident, Milwaukee lawyers recommend that you:
- Keep your helmet, jacket, bike and everything else involved in the crash exactly as it was found after the accident. They may provide clues about what happened in your accident, and they may be useful evidence as your case moves forward.
- Refrain from updating your Facebook status, sending tweets, or otherwise using social media. You do not want to risk damaging your case by using social media.
- Write things down as they happen to you. Keep a journal or other record of what is happening to you since the date of your accident. You might want to make note of any doctor’s appointments and rehabilitation therapy sessions, for example. You might also record how you are feeling physically and anything you had to miss or not do because of your accident injuries.
By keeping important evidence and not creating new evidence that may be used against you, you may provide important information to your lawyer, to insurance companies, and at trial so that you can get the settlement or verdict that you deserve for your motorcycle crash injuries.
