Whether as a result of an accident you must make a claim or you have a claim made against you or become a plaintiff of defendant in a personal injury lawsuit, planning and investigation are critical to success. Although you may have the assistance of a lawyer and your insurance company, you should be directly involved. Your involvement in the initial development of the facts through investigation will provide you with an advantage in dealing with the other party, insurance claims adjuster, and your lawyer. Memories fade with time. Start recordkeeping and investigation early. The really difficult problem in the preparation of the case is to learn what the facts are…. The Law seldom decides the issue, the facts do, and as contrasted with ascertainment of the facts, the Law is relatively easy to discover (L. Stryker, The Art of Advocacy 1954).
