When someone has been seriously injured in a bus accident in the state of Utah, one of the common mistakes that we see regularly are people not seeking the medical care that they need to heal from their injuries. If you have been injured, it’s important that you get in to see a doctor as quickly as you can, so that you can begin the process of making a physical recovery. Number two is to not follow the recommendations of your doctor. If a doctor has suggested that you do something, it’s important that you follow that doctor’s recommendations.
Number three is not hiring an attorney early on in the case. An attorney can step in, organize your case, help you avoid some of the pitfalls and the common mistakes that people make, and make sure that your case progresses smoothly. Mistake number four is not hiring an attorney who is a trial attorney. Insurance companies know who the trial attorneys are, and those cases are treated differently than the cases that are being run by attorneys who are not trial attorneys. It’s important that the attorney that you hire understands the court system and is willing to take your case to trial.
