Hi, this is Robert Mansour. There are five common mistakes I see in personal injury cases that I want to share with you.
The first one: Giving far too much information to the adjuster during that very first phone call. Not a very good idea.
No. 2: Failing to take pictures of all the vehicle damage, injuries, etc. You’ve got to document those things.
No. 3: Waiting too long to go to the doctor if you’ve been injured. The longer you wait, the more the insurance company is going to say that you had no injury whatsoever.
Also, not mentioning your injuries to the doctor. You go to the doctor but you forget to mention something or you figure you’re going to tough it out and not say anything to the doctor. A very common mistake.
Finally, you have to have reasonable expectations when it comes to your personal injury case. This is not the lottery. No one is going to get rich. It’s all about fair compensation.
If you have any questions about this or anything else, please contact my office. Thank you.
