What are some common mistakes people make that can ruin their personal injury claim?
We were speaking with an elderly lady the other day who was involved in a car crash. She hasn’t been involved in a car crash in over 30 years. One of her concerns as we were talking was she wanted to make sure she wasn’t doing anything that was going to damage her case. She didn’t want to make a mistake. As we were talking, we told her she did the first, right thing by seeking immediate medical attention. Not seeking medical attention is the biggest mistake someone could make with their personal injury case.
Another common mistake is when people do not follow the doctor’s orders. If you’re injured and consult with your doctor, your doctor is going to come up with a treatment plan specifically for you. If the doctor orders you to go to treatment and you don’t go to treatment, the insurance company is going to use that against you and say you weren’t even hurt. They’re going to say you weren’t hurt that bad if you didn’t follow what the doctor said. It’s really important to get to the doctor early and follow the doctor’s recommendations.
The other common mistake that people make is not hiring a trial attorney. It’s really important to hire a trial attorney from the beginning. A trial attorney is going to work to collect the evidence necessary for a successful claim. A trial attorney can also make sure the insurance company does the right thing. If the insurance company decides that they don’t want to do the right thing, a personal injury attorney will come in and fight for you.Your attorney can take it all the way to the jury and have the jury tell the insurance company what’s fair and reasonable.
