- In a car wreck?
- Hurt on the job?
- Injured in a slip and fall or trip and fall?
- How will you pay the medical bills?
- How will you pay your personal bills if you’re out of work and lose income?
- How can you get necessary medical care if you don’t have health insurance or can’t afford deductibles and co-pays?
Here’s a list of dos and don’ts:
Don’t do this – don’t give a recorded statement to the insurance adjuster for the other driver. Why not? It doesn’t benefit you, it benefits them. It helps them pay you less or nothing at all. It’s not required, even if they act like it is. If a recorded statement from you is fair, ask yourself why they won’t let your attorney take a recorded statement from the at fault driver. In short, don’t give a recorded statement to the at fault driver’s insurance company: It doesn’t help you, it’s not necessary for them to figure what happened, it’s one of their little tricks that more often than not helps them and hurts you.
Do this – if you can safely do it at the scene, take photographs of the scene, the damage to your car and the other driver’s car. When you’re able, take photographs of all visible injuries to your body. Photographs of cuts, scrapes, bruises, etc. are helpful proofs to convince the insurance adjuster that you really were hurt.
Don’t do this – don’t admit any fault at the scene. Cases can sometimes be won or lost based on statements made at the scene.
Don’t text and drive, please!
Don’t go it alone! Get help. You wouldn’t do your own surgery. You wouldn’t rewire your own house unless you were a trained professional. In the same way, if you’re dealing with an injury case, the other side has trained professionals lined up against you – you need your own trained professional lined up to fight for you.
