Michigan City Car Accident Lawyer |Mistake #4

Posted by Guy DiMartino | Nov 04, 2014 | 0 Comments

Michigan City car accident lawyer discusses mistake number 4 that personal injury claimants make after an accident.

The Problem: Some people initially try to handle their injury case on their own and when they receive a low ball offer from the insurance company they want to hire a lawyer. The problem with this approach is that as time goes on evidence related to the accident gets cold, vehicles are destroyed, or witnesses disappear.  With no evidence an injured person's claim can be ruined. Many people do not get the money they deserve because they did not hire an attorney before evidence was destroyed or lost and witnesses have disappeared.

The Solution: Consult with a lawyer immediately following an accident to protect your rights.  If you do not feel that you are ready to hire an attorney, follow the recommendations in my free book: A Guide to Indiana Car Accident Claims. If you decide to retain an attorney, he can begin investigating the accident to preserve evidence and interview witnesses.  An experienced personal injury attorney can identify potential weaknesses and issues early on and attempt to sure up the facts supporting the injured person's claim.

Indiana injury law is complex. Whether you want to hire an attorney to assist you with your Northwest Indiana car accident claim is up to you.  But before you sign an authorization for release for medical records, a release of claims or attempt to negotiate your own case with the insurance company, or if you have questions, you can always call our Michigan City accident lawyer at (219) 874-4878 .
