Question:

What are some common mistakes people make that can ruin their accident claim?

Answer:

The most common mistake that we see people involved in motor vehicle accidents make is Number One, talking with the insurance companies. The insurance companies do not always have your interests in mind. Whereas if you hire a personal injury attorney, they have your interests and your interests alone in mind and want to ensure that you are compensated for your damages. The second most important thing to consider is which attorney you hire. You want to hire an attorney who specializes in personal injury and specifically motor vehicle accidents.

You want an attorney who will be able to litigate and try your case if necessary. You need an attorney who understands personal injury and the system and is able to potentially try your case if needed. Thirdly, you want to make sure that you have the appropriate documentation for your claim. That goes back to hiring the right injury attorney because that attorney is going to make sure that everything is appropriately documented so that all of your damages can be presented to the insurance company, and then if necessary, to a jury. Those are all things that, unfortunately, a lot of people don’t know until they’re involved in an accident.

They don’t realize the importance of it, but those are all very important mistakes to try to avoid. One way to do that is to contact an injury attorney as soon as possible after the crash to get them involved and make sure someone is representing you and your interests throughout this process because insurance companies do not do that. If you have any questions, we’re always happy to talk and answer any questions that you might have.
