Common Mistakes Made by Injury Victims
Every day, our team at the
Fetto Law Group sees the common mistakes that injury victims are prone to make. These
mistakes may seem minor but they can have a huge impact on the value of
your final settlement - or even your ability to recover damages at all.
Common mistakes that many injury victims make include:
Waiting to get medical treatment. It is important to receive the care you need. Your health comes first.
Check the declarations page of your insurance to see if you have the necessary
coverage to pay for medical expenses. Realize, however, that the longer
you wait to get treatment, the more likely the insurance company will
take advantage of you. Claims can be diminished if you do not get medical
treatment, particularly if your failure to get medical attention results
in a worsening of the injury stemming from the incident.
Failing to obtain photo documentation. Take detailed pictures of your vehicle, the scene of the incident, your
injuries, and any other important evidence.
Speaking with the insurance company alone. You may experience a few accidents in the course of your lifetime, but
we deal with accidents and injuries every day, five days a week. We understand
how to protect your interests right now. Do not speak to the insurance
company without representation from a California injury lawyer.
Speaking to the opposing party's insurance adjustor alone. Do not talk to the "other side's" insurance adjustor until
you have consulted an experienced attorney of your own.
Failing to protect their rights. Too many injured men and women do not focus on taking the steps necessary
to protect their rights. We help you focus on the things that require
your attention in order to protect yourself, your rights, and your future.
