DON'T BELITTLE YOUR INJURIES

Posted by Ben Sessions | Feb 25, 2016 | 0 Comments

One of the most important things that we can do as your personal injury lawyers is to get to know you and help you prepare to interact with medical professionals and the insurance company's lawyers. Obviously, every person has unique personality traits and ways of dealing with injuries. Some people tend to belittle their injuries and downplay the significance of their injuries on their life.

You probably would not recognize this trait from today's pop culture, but we, as Americans, tend to want to reject the idea that we need help from anyone else. We have a “pull yourself up by your bootstraps” mentality that is engrained in us from birth. However, it is really important to understand the impact that statements reflecting this trait can have on your personal injury case.

We have to acknowledge the severity of the injuries. We have to acknowledge the impact that the accident has had on your life and your family. We have to acknowledge that you cannot make it back without the help of others. We have to acknowledge that you have been really changed by virtue of the carelessness of the other person.

So, getting beyond the invincible exterior that many of us try to carry is really important to your ability to recover following your car accident.

Practically speaking, what does this mean? When you speak with your doctor or anyone concerning your medical problems, do not downplay the significance of your injuries. However, you also should not overstate the injuries. Explain to them in as much detail as possible how the accident and your injuries from the accident have affected your life. It is critical to recognize that the insurance company will have all of your medical records. In fact, they will probably have records from doctors that you I do not even recall seeing. Inconsistencies in the timing of reports of injuries or inconsistencies in the types injuries reported can severely impact the value of your case.

If you need a car accident lawyer near Macon, Georgia that understands how to help you get the recovery that you deserve, call The Sessions Law Firm today.
