St. Louis Car Accident Attorney Discusses Pitfalls In Personal Injury Claims That Will Cost You Money

Sept. 24, 2009

How can you lose money after a car accident? Sometimes we make a mistake in trusting other people to treat us fairly, rather than getting help when we need it. Insurance companies start building a case against you from day 1! Adjusters are taught to believe that everyone involved in a car accident is dishonest ,or at a minimum,is exaggerating the extent their injuries.Yet injury victims assume that they are going to get everything they deserve if they can showthe adjuster that they are a nice person. Adjusters wont tell you that your mistakes will cost you money and keep you from being fairly compensated.After an accident, be sure to contact the police so that a report can be done.Make sure that you get treatment,or atleast get evaluated, when you feel that you may be injured.Do not give a recorded statement right after the accident because you may not realize the extent of your injuries.Also, make sure that you choose a doctor who understands that you have a right to be fairly compensated for your injuries and who will be cooperative in documenting your injuries.Finally, do not discuss settlement of your claim until you are finished with your treatment.
