If you or a loved one is involved in an accident, usually
the last thing in your mind is a claim or a lawsuit. However, to protect your rights, please take the following necessary
steps, if applicable to your circumstances:
In a car accident, always call the police. If necessary take an ambulance
to the Hospital to protect your health. If injured at work, make a report with your immediate supervisor. It makes no difference
whether you are paid off the books. Secure the names, address and phone numbers of witnesses if any. If you have an accident
in your building, your claim has more strength if that problem had been reported in writing, to the super or building owner.
call your lawyer, as soon as possible.
