One mistake that’s made is the client walks away from the scene of the accident. They’re struck by a motor vehicle, they feel bruised, but they don’t wait for the police to arrive and they leave the scene. That’s a big problem.

Second, they don’t properly advise the police officers who do show up on how the accident happened or what happened. Third, they don’t seek proper medical attention early on. Maybe they’re a little bruised at the scene of the accident and they refuse medical attention, and then the next day they can’t get out of bed. The advisable thing to do is, if you’re in pain and you were struck by a motor vehicle, go to the hospital and advise the hospital staff where your pain is and that you were in a motor vehicle accident.

Other mistakes that are made down the road is that clients don’t always follow the advice of their doctors and they don’t follow up with the proper medical treatment that they need, which can affect your case. Another problem that often happens is that the client will retain competent council, an attorney who is a personal injury lawyer that understands how to navigate through the process to get the client a proper recovery, but the client isn’t truthful to the attorney. One of the questions that I always ask a client is, “Were you ever injured before in a car accident? Did you ever suffer an injury in any type of accident where you’re claiming the same type of injuries that you’re claiming in this accident?” You want to be truthful with that attorney because the attorney will be able to better represent you through the process.
