If you have been injured in a car accident and you’re planning on filing a personal injury claim, you must always keep the laws in mind. You could end up sabotaging a personal injury claim through very simple mistakes that you may not even realize until it is too late. In any case, it is beneficial to have an experienced attorney on your side to help you and keep you from engaging in any of these mistakes.
What Could Sabotage My Case?
Lying: The consequences can be harsh for those who lie about your injuries or the events pertaining to the accident. Providing false information to insurance companies following an accident can void your personal injury lawsuit and bar you from receiving the compensation you were expecting.
Outright Mistakes: If you are submitting forms related to your accident, mistakes can occur. Even the most innocent of mistakes can have your accident claim labeled as a fraud and you could have your benefits terminated.
Never Speaking About Your Case: If an insurance adjuster or another attorney attempts to contact you, do not speak about your case unless you hired them to handle your case yourself. You should also not post anything about the case on your social media accounts, as insurance adjusters may attempt to investigate.
Following Doctor’s Advice: Always listen to your doctors and attend any appointments you can. There is never an excuse to miss an important appointment, as they could dismiss your case by claiming that you are not as hurt as you say you are.
Poor Communication: If you need help with a case, the best person to talk to is your personal injury attorney. This is why it is important to give us a call and speak to us about your case today. We understand how to help you receive the compensation you deserve.
