Welcome, my name is David Ricks. I am a personal injury trial lawyer in Rancho Cucamonga and the principle of the Inland Empire Law Group. Following an accident, one of the most important things that you can do is, is make sure that document information and keep track of records. Let me give you an example of what I mean by that. Following an accident, things are going to happen to you. You are going to feel things, you are going to experience things, and you are going to go to doctors’ appointments and things of that nature. But after several weeks, or maybe months or even years you will not remember all the details, and you are going to forget some of things that are really important to you at that time. So what you are going to want to do is keep some form of journal following an accident. You can keep that on your computer or on a hand written tablet or something of that nature. But it is important that you keep track of that information. When you have a deposition taken or you provide a statement to the insurance company, or even if you have to go to trial to prove your case. You are going to want to reflect back on those notes so that it reminds you of all the details of what you felt, what you experienced. So that you can tell the other person either the adjuster or the lawyer or the jury what you went through because of this accident. So following an accident, make sure that you start right away to keep track of all the records and all the information about what you have been going through, what you were feeling, what you were experiencing, what was going on in your life so you will not forget latter on.
