Mistakes People Make When Filing a Personal Injury Claim
Were you injured in an accident that was caused by another in Elk River, Minnesota? Then you need to know the types of common mistakes people make when filing a personal injury claim.
Not Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney
Some people believe that they do not need to hire an attorney that specializes in personal injury law when filing their claim with the court. While there are some attorneys that will do well representing someone in a personal injury case, they may not be familiar or comfortable negotiating large settlements. Hiring one of our personal injury lawyers will help you get the best outcome possible to help pay your hospital and medical bills.
Taking the First Settlement Offer
It is understandable for people to get excited when the insurance company offers a settlement amount for the first time. However, the first settlement offer is often not enough to cover ongoing living expenses and medical costs for people with permanent disabilities or injuries. Your attorney will help you negotiate a larger settlement out of the insurance company so you and your family can live comfortably.
Not Having all the Facts about the Accident
You need to build a strong case against the person or insurance company you are filing a personal injury claim against; otherwise, you will have a difficult time achieving a settlement offer. Immediately after the accident, take photos, gather witness statements, and go to the doctor to get checked out so your attorney can build a strong personal injury case for you. Also, do not talk to the insurance company without legal representation because you can severely hurt your case or settlement offer.
