How Can Someone Unintentionally Hurt Their Personal Injury Claim?
People can unintentionally hurt their personal injury claim by not being careful with social media. People post things on Facebook all the time, and even though they may be genuinely hurting, they’ll post pictures of going fishing, riding a bike, going to the fair, riding rides, or riding on horseback. When people are hurt, they don’t necessarily have to suspend their entire life and lay in bed all day, but it’s posting that snapshot in a time when a jury’s mind believes that you should not be doing those things. In their minds, if you really were hurt, you would not be doing that. So, social media can hurt a case. We don’t recommend posting anything on social media. And, we also don’t recommend making your social media pages public.
If the doctor wants you to go to a physical therapy two times a week for three or four weeks, then that’s what you need to do. If the doctor recommends that you take a certain type of medication and you don’t do it, then that’s going to hurt your case. Not going to your physical therapy appointments, and not taking the medication you are prescribed, will give the insurance company the argument that you hindered your treatment, and hindered your ability to recover in a quick manner. Therefore, they could state that they’re not going to pay or pay as much.
Can I Even Afford An Experienced Personal Injury Attorney To Represent Me In My Case?
You can afford an experienced personal injury attorney to represent your case if they work on a contingency basis. Our firm represents people in injury cases on a contingency basis. Our fee is contingent on the outcome of the case, which means that if we don’t recover, then we don’t get paid. The only time we get paid is when we settle a case or take a case to trial and get a judgment. With a contingency, the client is not out any money, there’s no out-of-pocket expenses for the client at all. We bear all expenses, and so we take all the financial risk in taking a case. If we take a case, then you probably have a decent case. We usually take cases that we’re confident we can win.
