Anyone who endures the pain or other physical problems as the consequence of an accident should keep track of his or her symptoms in a daily journal. Because pain, discomfort, anxiety, loss of sleep, etc. are the basis upon which any compensation will be determined, it is necessary to be as specific as possible. Those accident victims who fail to make immediate note of their problems run the risk of relying upon faculty memories to create inaccurate recollections. As a result, important details may not be included in a demand for settlement that may take place weeks or months after the initial incident. Keeping an injury journal also prevents seemingly inconsequential items from being forgotten. Sometimes, a mere bump or twist can lead to the understanding of a major problem later on.
