Avoid these common mistakes in a personal injury case to make sure you are eligible to recover the full compensation you deserve.

Question:

What mistakes should I avoid in a personal injury case?

Answer:

Common Mistakes in a Personal Injury CaseI met with a client last week who had made a bad mistake in his personal injury case. Initially, the client thought that his neck injury would heal up and he didn’t need to go to the emergency room right away. He ended up – a month and a half after his car wreck – having a compression fracture in his neck. The client was worried that the insurance company would not believe that it was caused by the wreck, so I advised the client to seek medical treatment and try to get medical opinions from the doctor that the compression fracture was caused by the wreck.

Other mistakes that I see clients make is they do not get the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of witnesses at accident scenes and they don’t take photographs of the accident scene. Many times, there’s valuable evidence at accident scenes that can be captured with a cell phone, if the client’s physically able. If you have any questions about your case, we’d love to help you. Please give us a call.
