What To Do If You Are In An Accident - Part Two

After the initial shock of the accident has worn off, there are a number of things you need to do, some of which will be on an ongoing basis until your case is resolved.  

MEDICAL ADVICE – Assure you have followed the treatment plan your doctor has set out, and follow up on all appointments with specialists or other medical practitioners.

MEDICAL CALENDAR – Track all of the medical appointments you attend, including with which doctor or other medical practitioners, on what date, and for what issues.

HEALTH JOURNAL – It is a good idea to keep a journal of your health complaints and pain levels between doctor’s visits.

POLICE REPORT – If the police were involved, obtain a copy of any police report and/or contact information from the attending police officer.

EXPENSES – Track all of your out of pocket medical expenses, including medications, assistive devices, therapies (such as physiotherapy or massage therapy), parking and transportation costs, housekeeping costs, personal support workers, and care providers. Keep all of your receipts.

MISSED WORK – Track your time off of work as a result of your injuries.

FAMILY JOURNAL – Have your family track how much time they spend caring for you and how much time they were required to take off work to help you.
