One of the most important things you can do if you were harmed by the negligence of another is to document your injuries. The danger of not having the extent of your injuries documenting may result in the insurance company believing that you are being hyperbolic with the extent of your injuries or even that you fabricated them.
Thus it is essential that you take pictures of visible injuries, such as lacerations, bruises, and swelling. Additionally, it would beneficial to take pictures of yourself wearing any devices that were prescribed by your doctor. This can include such things as a cast or bandage. By properly documenting your injuries may add value to your claim, due to the adjuster being able to view a true representation of the injuries you have suffered.
