A lot of people have asked me, “What are some of the most common mistakes that people make on their personal injury claims in the state of Utah?” One of the biggest ones is not seeking the medical care that you need right away. If you’re injured, you need to seek out the medical care of trained professionals who can help you get the care that you need to make a recovery. Number two, people don’t follow the advice of their doctors. They don’t go to their follow up appointments, they don’t follow their doctor’s recommendations, and they delay the healing process. Insurance companies look at whether or not you’re following the instructions of the doctor when trying to make a recovery.
Number three is not seeking out the help of an attorney. An attorney can come into a case early on, help organize the case, and help you avoid making a lot of these mistakes that people commonly make. Number four is when seeking out an attorney, make sure you seek out an attorney who is dedicated to personal injury work and is a trial attorney as well. An attorney can make one of the biggest impacts on your case, and the attorney that you hire could determine the ultimate outcome and value of your case.
