Keeping an Injury Journal After Your Motorcycle Accident

If you have been injured in an Orange County motorcycle accident, your personal injury attorney may instruct you to keep a daily journal recording your pain. A journal is especially important if your pain has no objective signs. It will help you remember how you felt on a particular day, which is important, because it can take many months, or even years, for your case to go to trial.

An Orange County motorcycle accident lawyer will do your best to help your personal injury case, but there are some things he cannot do. Knowing the frequency, duration, and severity of your pain is one of these things. It is up to you to document your pain in a way that can help you prepare for deposition, settlement, or trial.

Motorbike Accident On The City StreetUse your personal injury journal to record the pain you experience and the problems that arise as a result of that pain. Your journal should be in your own handwriting, unless you are unable to write because of your injury. Avoid showing your notes to anyone except your Orange County motorcycle accident lawyer. You should mail your notes to your attorney every month. Contact your attorney for more information about how he wants the journal to be completed and organized.

In a typical entry, you will describe your pain, discomfort, or other manifestation of your injuries, and how these things affect your everyday activities. Describe how you feel when you wake up and through the course of the day, until you go to bed. You will have “good days” and “bad days,” and it is important that you describe both. Don’t lie or exaggerate in the entries in your journal. It should be detailed, accurate, and honest. Your Orange County motorcycle lawyer will try to keep the journal confidential, but it may be introduced into evidence at trial and may be necessary to prove your pain and suffering.

If you have been injured and need a motorcycle accident lawyer in Orange County, we can help. Please call (888) 848-5084 to discuss your case, or fill out the free personal injury case evaluation form on this website.

I was in an accident a week before Christmas, my car was totaled and my arm was broken in several places. Therefore I was in need of a couple of pretty serious surgeries. Having never been in a car accident and being completely lost as to where I even begin, I was referred to Samer' Law Firm by a co-worker. Within hours of being released from the hospital they had sent someone to my home to take a statement, to began what was a seamless process that surprisingly required very little from me which I was thankful for considering I was out of work for the next 5 weeks with my injuries. I worked closely with Selena Bazan and Mike Habbas, they were both extremely patient in explaining what was completely a foreign process to me. Throughout the entire case I had plenty of questions or needed clarification, they were a phone call or email away to answer and to take the time to explain any and everything to me in detail and address any concern I had. Even when returning back to work if there was something that needed to be taken care of in person they came to me at my office. I was warned by several people who have been in accidents how matters like this can take months on months, even years. As of today my case is resolved! While maintaining professionalism and ensuring that I knew how important my case was to them, I always felt as though they genuinely cared for my well-being and that I received both the medical attention, after care and compensation I deserved. I couldn't be happier with the outcome and the treatment that I received from Samer habbas and Associates.read more
