Navigating a personal injury case can be confusing, especially when dealing with medical treatment, physical or occupational therapy, lost days at work and all the expenses involved.
Here are some things to avoid:
- Giving a recorded statement to the insurance company. Insurance companies are not looking out for the victims of negligence. They are only looking out for their company's interests and monetary bottom line. There is no reason why someone should give a recorded statement to the insurance company.
- Not following a medical professional's orders. If you don't follow up with treatment or aren't compliant with what your doctor tells you, the insurance company will use it against you. If there are gaps in treatment, they may claim there could have been another cause for your injuries.
- Failing to document facts and statements from the beginning. Viewpoints change over time. Documenting what happened, getting statement from witnesses, and recording your injuries are incredibly important.
- Settling early with an insurance company. Don't cut yourself short by settling with the insurance company before you've even undergone treatment.
