March is Brain Injury Awareness Month. As local and national organizations work to raise awareness about brain injuries, we should alwo work to raise awareness about protecting the fair legal and financial recoveries for brain injury victims.
How to Protect Your Own Recovery in Five Easy Steps
If you have suffered a Long Island construction brain injury, or you love someone who has been hurt in this way, then you know the medical expenses, lost income, and costs associated with the injury can add up quickly. As you begin the physical recovery from such an injury it is important not to lose sight of your possible legal and financial recovery. To that end, it is important to:
- Get prompt medical help. Brain injuries can get worse if not treated quickly.
- Follow your doctor's orders. You may risk your physical and financial recoveries if you injure yourself further.
- Be careful who you talk to about your accident. Anything you say or do can later be used against you in settlement negotiations or at trial.
- Keep copies of everything. Documentation of your injuries and expenses may make the recovery process easier.
- Talk to a Long Island construction brain injury lawyer. You do not have to do this alone.
Your recovery may affect your future and it is too important to take lightly.
