What Can I Do to Help My Florida Personal Injury Claim?
We understand how difficult severe injuries can be and know how they affect our clients’ livelihoods — physically, emotionally, and financially — which is why our Indian River County personal injury lawyer approaches each case, including car accidents, truck collisions, motorcycle crashes, and pedestrian injuries, with an aggressive approach to producing real results.
In return, there are several things our Florida personal injury clients can do to help ensure their claim maintains positive momentum from the beginning through the settlement or litigation outcome.
Continue to Receive the Complete Medical Care You Need to Fully Heal
If you are pursuing a personal injury claim, you have already received medical care that explained your injuries, and what it will take to heal.
That may include ongoing doctor’s appointments, surgeries, prescription and medical device use, and rehabilitation and therapy need.
Be sure to attend each appointment and follow all your medical provider’s instructions in full.
Do Not Talk About Your Personal Injury Claim with Anyone at Anytime
Do not under any circumstances apologize for the accident or admit guilt to the other driver, the insurance company, friends, or on social media.
If you want to discuss your case, talk to your attorney. Otherwise, all conversations about the accident should be avoided, so your statements are not taken out of context and used against you later.
Keep an Accident Notebook, So You Can Maintain Accident and Injury Details
After the accident, maintain a notebook with regular entries regarding important facts, anything you might remember from the collision along the way, your financial concerns, your ongoing medical conditions and treatment, and how the accident is impacting your day-to-day personal and professional life.
Date your entries and be honest.
Do Not Speak to the Insurance Company Without an Attorney
Insurance companies will try to settle personal injury claims as quickly as possible, and for as little as possible.
The insurance company representative will ask questions that are designed to reduce or deny claims, and your statement — whether you know it or not — may result in exactly that.
