The New York Times recently published an article that brought to light some of the less known, less discussed issues that arise after being seriously hurt. The article outlines the struggles of the father of a young pedestrian knockdown victim. The victim’s father describes his experience attempting to obtain an accident report and to learn more about the circumstances that resulted in his daughter’s critical injuries.
Obtaining proper documentation following an accident is absolutely crucial. ‘Proper documentation’ includes an accident report, witness statements, medical records and so on. Understandably it’s not uncommon for those who have been seriously injured to fail to gather vital information. This is part of the reason it is so important to seek the guidance of a personal injury attorney.
