5 Things You Can DO Today to IMPROVE your accident case

5 Things you can do today to improve your car accident case


If you have recently been in a car accident, you may feel overwhelmed and unsure about what to do.  As Ottawa personal injury lawyers, we have had many clients ask us about what they can do to help their case.  There are five simple ways that you can contribute to the success of your car accident claim.


  1. First, whether you have minor or serious injuries, it is important to keep all of your medical appointments.  This may seem obvious, but going to all of your scheduled appointments with doctors, physiotherapists, chiropractors, etc. demonstrates that you take your injuries, and your case, seriously.
  2. Secondly, seek all the medical attention necessary, and in doing so, use the maximum of your employment health benefits.  Not only will this give you the maximum benefit of medical care, but it demonstrates your efforts to address your injuries using all of your resources.
  3. It is also important for you to describe your symptoms consistently and accurately.  In order to improve the likelihood of having a successful claim, there must be a record of your all of your symptoms and injuries.  Each detail contributes to an accurate and complete description of the injuries you suffered in the accident.
  4. Just as it is important for you to seek all necessary medical advice, it is also essential that you follow all treatment recommendations.  Only by following the recommendations of your doctors will you begin to heal from your injuries.  It also improves your car accident case if you pursue all treatment options.
  5. Lastly, a good personal injury lawyer can provide important legal advice and guidance.  As experts in the field of car accident claims, the personal injury lawyers at Auger Hollingsworth offer invaluable experience to help you make a successful claim.  By following all of these steps, you can be assured that you are doing everything you can to improve your case.
