What should I do immediately to help preserve my claim?
There are time limits that govern how long you have to file your claim, so it’s very important to gather all the necessary documents that you have and preserve those. Those can include incident reports, statements you’ve given. Those can include medical records, things of that nature. It’s also very important to participate with any investigations that are conducted by legal authorities, police departments, fire departments, governmental agencies because that will help preserve your claim. It’s also very important to contact an attorney. An attorney will help guide you through the process and will help you identify in more specificity what you need to be preserving. The attorney will also help make sure that you file your claim within the timelines that are outlined in the law. Those are the various things you can do, but it’s important to do everything on a quick basis because you do have a limited amount of time before your deadline will expire.
