Don’t Discuss Your Case With Others

If an accident occurs and you sustain an injury, that’s already a tragedy in and of itself. But if that injury comes as the direct result of another’s actions, then not only is that accident tragic, it could have been easily avoided had the other party been more serious about maintaining basic civic responsibilities such as responsible driving, or the maintenance of the environment for reasons of safety and cleanliness.

When these kinds of injuries occur, you don’t have to simply accept your misfortune and move on. If someone is directly responsible for your injury, a personal injury lawyer can—and will—take your case, so you can get both the justice and the financial compensation that you are owed.

But in pursuing a personal injury case, this means gathering evidence, conducting an investigation and preparing arguments and evidence for court against the party that harmed you. And while all this is going on, once you know that you’ve got a court case, the party you are going to court against will likely have a lawyer and insurance company preparing a defense.

This means that not only are you and your team of legal and financial advisors working to gather evidence and investigate the matter, the other side will be too.

Counter Intelligence

When a case goes to court, one of the first things your personal injury lawyer will advise you to do is be very careful about disclosing facts about your case. In such a situation, the only people that will require absolute honesty and disclosure about your case are your own personal injury lawyer and the insurance company that works for you, since they will require full details for their own records and also to ensure they have observed all the responsibilities they may have in your case.

However, the party you are going to court with will obviously have insurance investigators who are also trying to get the facts of the case. Of course, the facts that they are interested would be any type of information that can defuse or negate your case, and if those facts come directly from you, so much the better.

So you may find that you will receive communications, visits or phone calls from investigators outside of your “team,” that would also like you to give details of an accident, or case. They may insist that all they want is the truth, but the reality is they want a version of the truth, in your own words, that supports their agenda, not yours.

You are under no legal obligation to answer to these investigators and, if you want to increase your chances of a successful court case, you actually shouldn’t communicate with them. A personal injury lawyer will strongly advise you that when it comes to anything relating to your injury and the case surrounding it, all information should be kept tightly within the confines of your legal team. Even an inappropriate joke about suing just for money can be twisted out context if it’s said to the wrong person.

This is why you should always follow the advice of your personal injury lawyer. Your case is yours alone, and so are the details behind it. Don’t share any this information with anyone else, especially if they are working on a counter investigation.
