If you have been injured in an accident it is a good idea to maintain a journal if you are physically able to. A journal does not have to be fancy or formal, but you should try to document everyone you are seeing and have seen during your care with detailed names, dates, and addresses. Keep a diary of how you feel, what problems you have had or are having, how you are or were treated and who witnessed or attended your care.

You should also maintain a log of your medical bills and any correspondence with your insurance companies after an accident. Keep track of incidental expenses associated with doctor’s appointments, hospital visits, medical supplies and pharmaceuticals as well.

The time immediately following an accident can be chaotic and confusing, and it's easy to forget or overlook things when trying to recall how you felt or what you were going through on a particular day.  Keeping a journal can be a big help.
