You were in a serious auto accident. Now, you need a
West Palm Beach accident lawyer to defend your rights. In an ideal world, you and your attorney would
work together to solve the problems associated with your crash:
- Together, you would obtain fair compensation for your injuries.
- Together, you would hold accountable the negligent driver who caused the accident.
- Together, you would minimize your personal hassle and frustration.
- Together, you would resolve the case swiftly.
But even if the facts favor you on paper, you can still make serious errors
that can compromise your case. Let’s see how easily you can imperil
your ability to win?
How Not To Damage Your Case
ALLOWING way too much time to elapse after the accident. The longer you wait to connect with a West Palm Beach auto accident attorney,
the harder your case becomes. Favorable witnesses may forget what happened.
Evidence might get lost. The defense can use the “break in the action”
to prepare against you.
BACK and forth about your story. Your accident attorney must build a logical, thorough, legally consistent
case based on what you tell him or her happened. Do not withhold information,
lie, or change your story midstream. You can you damage your case and
rupture the bonds of trust with your lawyer.
CALLING the insurance adjuster. If you talk to an insurance adjuster, you can accidentally give the would-be
defendant ammunition to use against you. Any admissions that you make
to the effect of “I'm sorry” or “it was partially
my fault,” for instance, can potentially exonerate the other driver.
In some cases, the driver may take your “admissions” and fire
them back at you — naming you as a defendant in a Florida personal
injury lawsuit. So you really need to be careful. Talk to your attorney
to learn more about what you can and cannot say about the case to other people.
