Mistakes Most Commonly Made in Personal Injury Cases

The immediate aftermath of an accident can be a scary and stressful time. If you keep your wits about you, though, you can not only get the medical attention you need, but also set yourself up for success in potential injury claims down the road.

Here are just a few examples of some of the most common mistakes that could jeopardize your chances in an injury claim:

  • Not calling out police: If an accident happens, it’s important to get police out to the scene so they can identify witnesses and evidence and fill out a police report. They may even be able to identify what they believe the cause of the accident to have been.
  • Not getting medical attention: Even if you feel okay at the accident site, there are many injuries that might not show up for hours, days or even weeks after the incident. Your initial surge of adrenaline will mask any injuries you suffered. Take the opportunity to get some medical attention so you do not damage your case by making it look as though you weren’t actually hurt.
  • Not getting evidence at the scene: There are going to be a lot of things going through your mind at the same time when you’re at the accident site, but you absolutely must take the time to take photographs, collect evidence and get witness contact information and testimony. This is crucial to the success of your case.
  • Waiting too long to file the claim: You must make sure you file your claim within your statute of limitations, otherwise your case will be automatically dismissed.

Working with a skilled injury lawyer in Bradenton can help you avoid these types of mistakes. Contact Goldman, Babboni, Fernandez & Walsh to get started on your case.
