When a person is injured through the fault of another, several important events must take place in order for the injured person to protect his or her rights. The injured person must seek medical attention immediate. The longer the injury person waits to see a doctor, the weaker his case against the wrong doer becomes. It is best to see a medical doctor as soon as possible, hopefully on the day of the accident. The injured person must not fail to tell the doctor that the reason he needs medical attention is because of the accident. Give the date, time and location of the accident to the doctor and describe what happened.

After seeking medical attention, contact an attorney. The attorney needs to tell the injured person how much time is allowed by the law to sue the person who caused the injury. Some case may be settled with out going to court. However, most cases are first filed in the proper court and later settled or tried. Very little information is available to the client and his attorney before the case is filed in court. Most cases take from one to two years to prosecute. A process of discovering information takes place in which the injured person must produce medical records and bills which demonstrate that he was injured. Records of the time that that person was off work and the salary that he earned at the time of the accident must be produced. The injured person may need to employ the services of one or more expert witnesses to testify to the injured persons medical problems that are the result of the accident, his past and future wage loss and the way that the accident happened.

The injured person or the person who is blamed for an accident should seeks the services of an experienced attorney who has tried cases to a jury and can plan the use of experts and other witnesses. Law suits have numerous rules which a lay person will have difficulty discovering. For example, in California, an demand for notification that an injured person will use an expert witness must be answered in a particular format and by a particular time or the injured person will loose the right to call an expert witness on his behalf.
