What is pre-suit and why does it affect my personal injury case

A personal injury lawsuit is a complicated endeavor. In order to have the best chance of a favorable judgment or an agreeable settlement, you must have a plan and all of the evidence in place before proceeding with the personal injury lawsuit. The pre-suit phase of the lawsuit is the investigatory time where all of the evidence will be collected and inventoried. It is important to have all of the information at hand before attempting to collect a settlement or take the injury claim before court.

If you were injured due to a car crash or an injury on private property, it’s important to do a couple things to ensure you have all the evidence to support your claim.

If you were injured during a car crash here’s a short list of things you need to do.

  1. Call the police to report the accident. Do not admit fault. If you are injured, take the ambulance to the hospital.
  2. If you can, take photographs of the scene with your smartphone and include pictures of the damage from any vehicles that were involved
  3. Call Cory Baird.

If you were injured while you were on private property such as a business in Tampa or a restaurant in St Pete, here s a short list of things you need to do:

  1. Report the injury to the owner or supervisor and fill out an incident report. Do not admit fault or be pressured into doing so.
  2. Take photographs of the scene and the conditions that led to you being injured.
  3. Call Cory Baird
