What mistakes should I avoid after a car accident?
Sometimes I’m asked what the big mistakes are that people make when they’re involved in car accidents here in Florida. It’s heartbreaking to see these mistakes. One thing that a person can do is delay medical treatment. That is sometimes fatal to a case.Mistakes to Avoid After a Car Accident
Ultimately, we have to prove to either an adjuster or to a jury that you’ve been injured. The best way to do that is through the medical documentation. The person who turns away the ambulance or decides that they don’t have time to go to the hospital can be making a big mistake. Sometimes we don’t always understand how badly we’ve been injured when the adrenaline is still flowing right after the accident. Sometimes it takes time for our body to finally feel and experience the pain and suffering that has been inflicted upon us by the other driver’s inattentiveness.
Another big mistake is to not hire the right attorney. There are many attorneys out there who do personal injury law, but not many appreciate all the nuances that it involves. I’ve seen many situations that I wish I could get in a time machine and have the client do things differently.
