Keeping a "Pain Journal"

After you have been injured in an accident, your attorney may tell you that it is a good idea to write down a diary or journal documenting your pain from the accident. This is, in general, a good idea, as it allows you to better remember exactly when you started feeling better, what activities exacerbate your injury and overall how much compensation you may be due after the accident. One major problem with a pain journal is that, too often, people do not keep a consistent record of their injuries. Like many other tasks, after the first week or two it can get pushed to the side and added to the list of things to do "tomorrow."
