Car accident cases that lead to injury, or worse, wrongful death, can be stressful and exhausting. This is precisely why it’s important to hire a auto accident lawyer so you have someone to guide you along the way and ensure that you don’t make any mistakes that might compromise your claim. Here’s a look at a few of these common mistakes and how to avoid them.
1.Lying About Your Case
Lying about anything related to your case won’t just hurt your claim, it’s also against the law. Always tell the truth when talking to your lawyer, insurance companies, and the authorities. Never believe that you can get away with lying, especially when under oath.
2.Not Being Careful with Forms
Mistakes on your insurance forms and other legal paperwork can be costly for your case, no matter how trivial they seem. if you choose to file your own paperwork for a personal injury claim, your form needs to be 100% accurate upon submission, hence the importance of having a lawyer.
3.Being Too Chatty About Your Case
It’s one thing to tell the truth, and completely something else if you’re talking constantly about your car accident case. Far too often many accident victims end up compromising their claim for compensation because they were caught (usually by someone from the insurance company) saying something that can be used against them.
