Having successfully settled and tried plenty of personal injury cases, we see a lot of people make mistakes over and over again that destroy their lawsuits.
We discuss the top 5 things we constantly see that has helped either ruin or seriously harm a victim’s personal injury case time and time again.
The first thing you need to do after an accident is call the police. Don’t let the other driver talk you out of getting the police involved. You may not need a police report in your case, but it can be helpful. Also not seeing a doctor or going to a hospital is a big problem. Personal injury cases are medically driven, which means that you’re compensated based on your injuries and medical bills. You need to see a doctor, get checked out, and then follow their treatment plan explicitly. After you’ve called the police and sought medical attention, your next step is to call your insurance company and report the claim. Not contacting your insurance company can cause serious issues in your claim if you need their assistance later with more coverage. Last but not least, seek the help and advice from an experienced personal injury attorney regarding your accident case. You need someone who is looking out for your best interest and yours alone to assist you in recovering compensation for your pain and suffering. Watch the video now to learn more.
