In this week’s blog, we would like to continue with part two on how to help with your personal injury case at Lake of the Ozarks. There may be a lot of things that feel beyond your control when you are dealing with a personal injury caused by someone else’s negligence. But, there are several things that you can do to help your situation and achieve the best possible outcome. In part one we talked about how to handle your medical care, seeking legal advice as quickly as possible, and documenting absolutely everything. This week we’re going to give you two more tips to help you with your case. Just keep reading to see tip #4 and #5!
There will be many discussions about your medical condition and care, but ultimately the personal injury case is about legalities. That is why it is so important to have legal representation for every conversation with involved parties such as insurance companies and attorneys. When you don’t understand the legal nuances of a personal injury case it can be easy to allow the opposing attorney to lead you into saying things that can be construed as fault or responsibility. When you have an attorney like Roger Gibbons by your side with legal expertise in personal injury cases, you can rely on him to guide you and help protect you from being misled.
When you do give statements about your injury or the accident itself, is best to be direct, honest, and without exaggeration or embellishment. At the same time, usually the less said the better. This is true even when you are not officially giving statements. In conversations with friends and family, and comments or posts on social media, it is best to stay away from the topic of your injury, recovery, the accident, or anything related to it. Even celebrating a milestone like finally being able to drive or walk far enough to get into a movie theater can be used to imply that your life is not limited at all by the opposing attorney.
