What You Should Not Do After Suffering a Personal Injury
Many Hollywood injury attorney websites focus on what you should do after a personal injury. Giving information on what someone should do is valuable, and it is an essential part of our job. With that said, we'd like to switch things up (as Hollywood likes to do) and tell you what you should NOT do after suffering a personal injury.
If someone injures you, do not retaliate. If you slip on a wet floor at a supermarket, don't yell, threaten employees, push, or react physically in any way against them. If you retaliate and cause injury, you may find yourself liable for civil damages and potentially facing criminal charges.
Don't Brush it Off
After an injury that doesn't require immediate medical care, it may be tempting to ignore the incident, avoid conflict, and move on. You may want to brush it off to smooth things over and move on with your life, but doing so could be costly. Not all injuries are apparent right away. A seemingly minor injury may turn into a serious injury if ignored. Seek medical care as soon as possible. and make sure you have the information of the person who injured you.
Don't Deny Being Injured
Don't act tough and deny that you might have sustained an injury. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Tom Cruise, and a host of other Hollywood actors have that covered. Denying that you are injured will only make it more difficult to recover compensation for your damages.
Don't Admit Fault
When someone else injures you, saying 'oh, it was my fault' to reduce tension at the moment might be tempting. Even if you feel intimidated or pressured to accept blame, don't do it. If you sustain an injury caused by someone else, it is not your fault.
If you were partially at fault, that determination is for courts, insurance companies, and lawyers to make. Even if you are clearly not at fault, any statement in which you admit to having blame -- even partially -- will be used against you.
As a pure comparative negligence state, California law bases damages recoverable solely on the percentage of each party's negligence or fault. Because of the comparative negligence rule, if you suffer an injury by someone else's actions, don't say it was your fault to be polite and defuse the situation. Doing so may help momentarily, but it can also substantially undermine your claim and your ability to recover compensation for your damages.
Don't Give Out Unnecessary Personal Information
After suffering an injury, do not give out unnecessary personal information. Don't bring up what you do as a hobby or in your spare time. Don't bring up prior injuries, sports you participate in, or other activities you engage in. Don't even mention your job. Unnecessary information you volunteer about yourself could serve to shift fault.
For example, if you slip and fall in a store and hurt your back in the process, don't bring up the fact that you played rugby in college. If you volunteer such information, the store's insurance company could allege that your back injury already existed. There’s no need to lie, of course, but limit the information you give at the scene to only that which is necessary to report the incident and proceed with a claim.

When Is it Time to Contact a Personal Injury Attorney?
If you are injured due to the actions of another party, contact a Hollywood personal injury lawyer right away. If necessary, seek emergency medical treatment first. However, if the injury does not require emergency treatment, you may want to contact a Hollywood personal injury attorney before going to the doctor.
Your lawyer will be familiar with local medical providers and may be able to recommend a trusted doctor for your specific injury type. Your lawyer can also help by advising what documentation you should get from the doctor and what questions will be most beneficial to ask your medical treatment providers.
