Florida Personal Injury Case “Dont’s”


A lot of things have gone wrong during and after the accident, and there is no reason to make it worst. However, it is understandable that the negative impact of the accident can cause people to act rashly and make uncalculated decisions. While it is normal to feel exhausted, mad and confused after getting hurt from an accident, you should remember to still be in your best behavior as much as you can if you want to win your personal injury case.

Here are the “Don’ts” you should avoid doing when you are filing for a personal injury case:

• Lie About Your Injuries – Some people tend to overexaggerate the extent of their injuries, thinking that it will invoke sympathy and make their case more compelling. The truth is lying about your wounds, whether through exaggeration or mentioning non-existent injuries, will only make you lose your personal injury case and claim. Remember that there will be an investigation and that proof will be asked from you.

• Delaying Your Medical Treatment – If you do not have a good reason to delay your medical treatment, do not put it on hold. Not attending your check-ups, therapy sessions, and other health appointments for your injuries will only make your claim doubtful. It takes away the sense of urgency.

One of the doubts that can spring from delayed treatment is that your injuries might not be from the accident after all and are actually caused by something else. This will make you lose your personal injury case and claims from your insurance providers.

• Do Not Hide Important Details – Hiding important information is just as bad as lying about something in an effort to make your case stronger. Your personal injury lawyer should be aware of everything, down to the tiniest detail. For example, if you are taking medication, you should inform them so they can build a more solid argument that can help you win without question.

• Acting Rashly Without Consulting Your Lawyer – Agreeing to statements, signing documents, and making comments about your case to someone else without your lawyer knowing is a dangerous thing to do. You can be easily taken advantage of and your words can be used against you. Always consult your personal injury attorney first if you want to make any decision, and do not agree easily to what other parties might offer you or tell you.

At the same time, anything that you discussed with your lawyer should be kept in between the two of you. You should treat everything with confidentiality or else you will provide others with information that they can use against you.

Dealing with a personal injury case is hard especially when you are in your most vulnerable state in the midst of recovery. That is why personal injury attorneys are here to help you. Just remember the “Don’ts” above and trust your legal representation to handle and win your personal injury case for you.
