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.

What Steps Should I Take If I Have To File A Personal Injury Claim?
If you have to file a personal injury claim, the first step you should take is to contact a lawyer to help you through the process.

Getting the police to investigate the incident will produce an official record along with statements from witnesses. Sometimes, witnesses will stop and help before the police get there, and sometimes they don’t stick around for the police. Therefore, it’s good to talk to any witnesses. It’s essential to get their names, numbers, and an account of what they saw to make sure that they’re going to be a good witness for you. It’s really important to have witnesses who actually witnessed the accident, especially if it’s going to be a dispute of liability where the other person is going to say it’s your fault and not theirs…Read More

They will try to argue that the medical treatments were not reasonable and necessary. If the jury believes the defense doctor and believes that your doctor over treated, then the jury can give an award of less than what your medical bills are…Read More
