If you’re involved in a personal injury matter, there are some things that you should know so that you don’t harm your own case.
You may feel complied to talk to the other party’s attorney or insurance company about your case. This is a bad idea. These people are trained in how to get information out of you that they’re not allowed to have or know.
For example, maybe the insurance company calls to get permission to review your medical records. But they may not be allowed to do so until a certain time in your case. They may review your past medical history and blame your accident or injuries on those past events, denying you any coverage or compensation. Or maybe you’re getting phone calls or letters sent directly to you asking questions or asking you to settle. All of these documents should be taken to your lawyer right away. Don’t make the mistake of hiring a lawyer to take care of your legal needs and then not use him properly. Your lawyer is there to help you make the best decisions for you, so that you get all the compensation and recovery possible in your case. Watch the video now to learn more.
