Question:

What mistakes should I avoid after being injured in a car accident?

Answer:

Common Mistakes After a Car Accident There are several common mistakes that we see when somebody has been involved in a car crash in the state of Utah. First, talking with the insurance company and answering some of their questions that may or may not be misleading gives them ammo to use against you at a later point in the claim. Another mistake is not seeking medical care right away for the injuries that you sustained. If you wait too long, insurance companies like to believe that your injuries were not caused by the crash.

Another mistake that people make is not following the recommendations of their doctors. If their doctors diagnose them and prescribe treatment, a mistake would be to not follow up with that treatment. Finally, a major mistake is to not seek the help of an attorney or to pick the wrong attorney who doesn’t dedicate their practice to personal injury claims.
