Getting hurt is difficult enough, but when it’s an injury people can’t see, it’s even harder. As you go through your daily routine the struggle can be very real, but people can’t understand your pain. When it comes to insurance claims, it can be even more difficult to prove your need for compensation. Having the right information can be a huge difference in how your case is handled by insurance, or even in a court case.
There are a number of things you can do in the first few days and weeks after your accident to protect your rights.  Back injury claims can be difficult to win, and your actions immediately after an injury can have a major impact on your chances of successfully winning your case.  
What should I do?
Write out the accident exactly as you remember it as soon as possible, take the time to write down all the details, the longer you wait the harder this will be.
Keep detailed records of doctor’s visits: Include hospital and rehab bills, doctor visits, and even travel costs to and from your medical treatment
Keep track of all written communications you receive: emails, letters, and even handwritten notes, all are important.
Secure an attorney early: Working with an attorney to identify and preserve the evidence necessary to your claim is better done sooner rather than later.  
Every state has time limits known as a statute of limitations that restrict the amount of time you have to file a personal injury lawsuit. The time frame, generally between one and six years, if missed your claims will be dismissed without any chance of filing the claim in the future, no matter what the circumstances.
