3 Things that Ruin Personal Injury Claims after a Texas Car Accident

Posted by Jennifer Hodges Kahn | Feb 10, 2012 | 0 Comments

When you're injured in a car accident, your first priority should be to tend to any injuries and seek medical treatment from a doctor or at a hospital. Emergency medical respondents will stabilize any serious and immediate injuries, but you should always seek medical attention after you leave the scene of the accident. 

However, you can also protect your potential personal injury compensation claim by speaking with an attorney from a Houston personal injury law firm.

Avoid these 3 mistakes that could jeopardize car accident injury claims: 
  • don't give a recorded statement to the insurance adjuster – at least, not until after you have spoken with your car accident injury and claims attorney;
  • don't hide any previous injuries or misrepresent the truth about your medical condition. Be completely honest about your medical history. Any previous injuries will come up, and if you hid them instead of being open and honest, it will backfire; and
  • don't delay in getting medical attention or in following up on your doctor's orders. If you fail to treat your injuries seriously, then the insurance company and defense will argue that you weren't severely injured and that you jumped to the question of “who can I sue?”  
Speak with a Houston personal injury lawyer who can help you with your claim and protect your family from mounting expenses caused by someone else's recklessness and negligence. 

“Who can I sue?” Contacting a Car Accident Injury Claims Lawyer 

When you have experienced legal representation on your side, you can rest assured that your attorney will fight for all compensation to which you may be entitled, including past, current and future medical expenses; pain and suffering; lost earnings or earning potential; or wrongful death benefits.

While you focus on your recovery and emotional wellbeing, you should have a personal injury compensation attorney at the Houston personal injury law offices of The Kahn Law Firm advocating for your rights. Contact us today – 1-713-226-9900 or toll free 1-844-301-KAHN.
