Regardless of the circumstances of your personal injury case, there are several things you need to consider while the case is ongoing. These guidelines apply to auto accidents, slip and fall accidents, and other personal injury matters. While it is important to obtain a lawyer and follow their advice, there are several mistakes that many people make.
Talking About Your Case
You should not talk about your personal injury case with anyone other than your attorney. If the other party involved in the case tries to contact you, either directly or through an agent or attorney, you should refuse to talk to them and refer them to your attorney.
Signing Away Your Rights
If you have been injured and it is the fault of someone else, you have a right to fair compensation. But if you accept a settlement offer, you may no longer be able to get additional compensation if it becomes required. You should never sign any document or check from an insurance company or liable party without first reviewing it with your attorney.
Many people today have a tendency to share much of their lives on social media. It is important that while your personal injury case is ongoing, you do not divulge details on social media. There are many ways for the liable party or insurance company to get a hold of the information you are putting on the Internet. In some instances, this can greatly hurt your case.
