Whether you have been injured in a car accident, a slip and fall, or because of a dog bite, you may have a claim to file a personal injury lawsuit. However, before seeking out the services of Miami, Florida injury lawyers, get immediate treatment for your injuries. By doing so, not only will you receive much-needed medical care, but you will also allow your lawyer to properly assess your case. To help ensure your lawsuit will ultimately be successful, keep these tips in mind.

Get Treated Immediately
Even if you think your injuries are minor, seek immediate medical treatment. Not only will this let doctors examine you for serious injuries, but it will also provide documentation of your injuries in your medical records, which will be crucial to proving your case. If you delay seeking treatment, a defendant’s lawyer and insurance company will claim your injuries are not serious, or may claim you are exaggerating your injuries to obtain compensation.

Don’t Lie About Your Injuries
If you consult with an attorney at Aronovitz Law, never lie about your injuries. State specifically how and where the injuries occurred, the medical treatment you received, and any future treatment that will be necessary. By doing so, you will allow your attorney to determine if you have a case worth pursuing.

Visit Your Own Doctor
Even if you received treatment at an accident scene or in an ER, always schedule a visit with your own doctor. Not only will this be an opportunity for a second opinion, but since your doctor knows you and your medical history better than anyone, she or he will be able to accurately assess the seriousness of your injuries.

If you have been involved in an accident and have been injured through another individual’s negligence or carelessness, contact the Miami, Florida injury lawyers at Aronovitz Law today to schedule an initial consultation.
