3 Mistakes That Can Seriously Wreck Your Car Accident Lawsuit

Any mistake, even a small one, made during a car accident lawsuit can have consequences. Your case could lose credibility, compensation could be lowered, or it could even be thrown out completely in some cases.

Luckily, victims and personal injury lawyers can be proactive in preventing common mistakes from affecting their case and settlement. To help, here are some of the most common mistakes made when it comes to Los Angeles car accident lawsuits.

Before it is too late, you should consider reaching out to a trusted attorney. The Los Angeles personal injury lawyers at Fair Cases Law Group offer a free consultation to discuss your claim.

Mistake #1: Discussing Your Injuries or Case

To be safe, you should avoid talking about your case with anyone besides your personal injury attorney. This includes talking to any insurance company representative. You could accidentally provide information to the defense or an insurance adjuster, and this could certainly hurt your case for compensation.

That said, it’s very important that you share all information with your attorney. He or she can’t help your case if there you leave certain important details out of the picture.

Mistake #2: Posting on Social Media

Even a seemingly harmless post on social media can have serious, lasting consequences.

For example, a Facebook photo of you playing soccer when you’re supposedly unable to walk can and will be found by insurance adjusters or others. Searching social media has quickly become the norm for investigators looking for discrepancies in injury cases, so do not underestimate to danger of posting about your accident.

Mistake #3: Ignoring Medical Advice or Appointments

It’s very important that you follow your doctor’s advice on caring for your injuries.

Additionally, attending any and all follow-up appointments is necessary in order to retain the credibility of your injuries. Failing to show up to an appointment could cause others to question whether or not your injuries are actually serious enough to warrant compensation.

Don’t Make the Mistake That Could Cost You Thousands

Make sure you understand what is at stake before accepting the insurance company’s offer or sign away your rights in a settlement. The insurance company is a business, and they may not have your best interests at heart. With that said, you may end up making all kinds of mistakes on your own, for example:
  • Accidently admit fault for the accident
  • Assume your injuries are too minor to justify a claim
  • Think that your driving history can impact your claim
  • Forget you deserve compensation for lost pay and lost earning power
  • Neglect to include your future medical costs in your demand for compensation
  • Accept an inadequate settlement offer because you don’t realize what you deserve or you are too tired of fighting on your own
