Believe it or not, many people make the same common mistakes that can ruin a case. As a personal injury lawyer, we advise that you must avoid the following mistakes at all cost:
- Avoid becoming aggressive with the defendant
- Contact the proper authorities and never lie about the incident
- Know the statute of limitations in your state
While all of these things seem fairly simple, they are not necessarily the first things that pop into someone’s head after an accident. And you do not want to do anything that may jeopardize your case. Silverthorne Attorneys is here to minimize the stress of your case.
Avoiding Aggression with a Defendant
It is understandable to be upset after an accident. Especially when you are suffering from serious injuries due to the negligence of another. However, you do not want to engage the defendant in a physical confrontation. In doing so, you could weaken your case and potentially have charges brought against you for assault.
The best option is to focus that energy on healing and let your personal injury attorney handle the legality of the case. You want to find a law firm that will work hard to get you the compensation you deserve for your injuries. The team at Silverthorne Attorneys will take the necessary investigative steps to ensure that your expenses, effected income, and lost quality of life are compensate appropriately.
Contact the Authorities
Contacting the proper authorities after an incident where injuries are sustained is important. These agencies range from animal control for dog bites, food safety for potential food poisoning, and 9-1-1 for car accidents. Do not hesitate to contact these agencies if you or a loved one is suffering from injuries due to the negligence of another.
For instance, if you are in a car accident, make sure you contact the police to take down a report. Be sure to always tell the truth about the accident. Being dishonest will be detrimental to your case. Insurance companies will waste no time in investigating your claim. If your story changes or if they find out that you are not truthful in your statements, they may deny your claim.
Statute of Limitations
The statute of limitations in California for personal injury cases is two years. Essentially, there are legal limits of time for you to pursue injury cases. If no action is taken before this time expires, you lose the legal right to pursue your case.
That is why it is very important to hire a personal injury lawyer right away. Believe it or not, it can take a great deal of time to build a strong case. The sooner you contact Silverthorne Attorneys, the faster we can work on your case.
We Don’t Get Paid Unless We Win
Most people are hesitant to reach out to an attorney due to financials issues. However, we work on what is known as a contingency fee basis. This means, we build your case and recover the money you need without requiring you to pay anything up-front.
We only collect our fees if and when we win your case. This way, you do not have to be afraid of going into debt and worrying about paying us. If we do not secure a settlement, you don’t have to pay any fees for our services. This allows you and your family the security to pursue your case, get treatment, not worry about finances.
