3 Common Mistakes Surrounding Personal Injury

Avoid these post-accident pitfalls
If you are the victim of an accident, your life might feel out of control. You might be dealing with medical bills and injuries, and it can be a confusing time for you and your family members. But don’t worry, BB&C has been through this before. We know the process and are here to walk you through it. Let’s start with three of the most common mistakes to avoid after you’ve been injured.

Not seeing a doctor

Seeking medical attention right away can make a huge difference in both your healing process and any possible compensation recovery. Doctors provide an objective, authoritative record that can be invaluable in legal work.

Waiting to contact an attorney

You need someone in your court—and fast. Attorneys can help you through the process step by step, keep insurance adjusters out of your hair, deal with any liens, and help you secure the best possible outcome. Do not accept any offers or sign any legal papers before speaking with a trusted attorney.

Failing to document medical details

Accurate record-keeping can make or break a personal injury case. We recommend keeping a medical journal from the get-go. Document the following items: symptoms, doctor visits and treatments, medications, expenses, and other ways the accident has affected your health and well-being. Avoiding these all-too-common mistakes after an accident will up your chances of successfully recovering any compensation you deserve.
