The First Steps to Making a Personal Injury Claim

Many people are often shaken and distressed following a fall or accident, and rightly so. Once you have cared for your health and well-being, you should consider pursuing a personal injury claim if you believe you deserve justice for a sustained injury. We are therefore providing tips on the first steps to making a personal injury claim.
Collect Evidence
An injury may not only have only impacted your physical health, but it may also have affected your mental health and financial well-being. You, therefore, should start building a case to support a potential claim.
To identify who or what caused an accident, you must start to collect any evidence that can help support a personal injury case. You should also take as many photographs as possible of your injury or any damaged caused to your belongings during to the accident.
Detail the Accident’s Impact
It is wise to write down a list of everything that has happened to you following the accident. For example, have you experienced post-traumatic stress disorder, had to attend multiple hospital appointments, lost work or wages, or do you have to pay any expensive medical bills? Write down as much as you can think about and be as detailed as you can.
Contact Witnesses
If possible, try to gather the names and contact information of potential witnesses that may have observed the injury or accident. Once you have the information, contact the people to confirm their details, and ask if they would be willing to serve as a witness for a potential case.
Take Notes from Other Victims
Was anyone else involved in the accident you experienced? If so, ensure you take notes of any conversations you have with those involved. These conversations, no matter how big or small, could help you receive the compensation you deserve.
State if You Plan a Counter Lawsuit
In some cases, an individual or company may decide to file a lawsuit against you following the injury or accident. If so, you should inform them that you are also planning to file a personal injury claim for the injuries you have sustained and any damaged caused to your property.
Consult an Experienced Personal Injury Attorney
Once you are confident you have a personal injury case, you should consult an experienced personal injury attorney. Zanes Law can provide a free, no risk consultation on the same day of an enquiry, which will allow you to make an informed decision. Thanks to their many years of experience, they will have the knowledge you need to seek and receive the compensation you rightfully deserve.
Don’t suffer in silence following an accident or fall that wasn’t your fault. Whether you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident, slip and fall, trucking accident or have another type of personal injury, you should make a claim to seek financial compensation that will allow you and your family to move on from the unfortunate event.

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
