How to Avoid the Three Biggest Mistakes You Could Make
If you are injured in an accident, it is important to avoid making three mistakes that could harm your health and prevent you from being fully compensated for your injuries:
1. Not being treated for pain. If you are in pain after an injury, go to a doctor and get treatment. Don’t tough it out or delay.
2. Not following treatment advice. If a doctor or hospital says you need treatment or tests, you need to follow their advice. The law requires you to care for your health; otherwise, you will decrease the value of your claim.
3. Not keeping medical appointments. You are hurting your health and your claim value. Keep your medical appointments, and keep your lawyer fully informed about your medical treatment. Make sure your lawyer has copies of every medical bill and report you receive.
