Your Personal Injury Case
After you have sustained personal injuries, it is critical that you follow the measures below.
- DO NOT SPEAK TO ANYONE.
Do not discuss your accident with anybody other than one of our lawyers or a representative from the law company we have hired for you. Do not speak with your own insurance company or any lawyers engaged by your own insurance company without first informing us so that we can be there if we so desire. Generally, any statements taken in your attorney’s office will be preferred. Remember that statements you make without your lawyer’s help may unintentionally harm your case. Have a look at this link for more info on this.
- YOUR PHYSICIAN
You should see each of your doctors as often as you need to and tell them about all of your problems. You should not downplay your symptoms in front of your doctor because it is one of the best methods for them to figure out how to treat you and because they will keep track of your concerns. It is critical that you do not cancel booked appointments with your doctor because this could be interpreted as a sign that you were not in that much pain or in need of medical attention. If you see any other doctors, make sure to give your attorney their names and addresses right away. Please keep a careful record of each appointment, as well as the amount of each charge.
- POLICIES OF INSURANCE
To ensure you receive all coverage and benefits available, provide your attorney with complete copies of all insurance policies in effect on the date of the accident, including the declaration pages, as well as the policy and declaration pages of all automobile policies of any relative living with you. Additional benefits may be available to you, which is why your attorney will request copies of your insurance documents, including your health insurance policies.
PAYMENT OF BILLS is the fourth step.
All medical bills should be sent to your motor vehicle insurance company (if you have med pay coverage) and then to your health insurance company. You must also submit your attorney copies of all of your expenses, including medication expenditures.
- COMPLAINTS RECORD
Please keep a daily journal in which you record your complaints and improvements, as well as any challenges you face (sleepless nights, inability to perform certain activities, doctor visits, dates you have to hire help, etc.). This is beneficial because you will not be able to recall your suffering and challenges as vividly a year later.
