Things Which You Should NOT DO:

  • Do not give any statements, written, recorded, or oral, to anyone concerning your accident or injuries without first getting our approval.

Things for you to REMEMBER:
Address and Phone: Inform your attorney immediately of any change of address and/or telephone number or employment.

Five BIG MISTAKES clients make:

  • Not seeing the doctor if you are in pain.
  • Not doing what your doctor tells you.
  • Not keeping your doctor appointments.
  • Discussing your case with anyone other than your attorney or your doctor.
  • Failing to tell your doctor about medical problems due to the accident.

Follow Your Doctor’s Advice
Be sure to do what your doctors tell you. There is never a reason or excuse to miss a doctor’s appointment. By missing a doctor’s appointment, you are saying to the doctor and to the insurance company that you don’t hurt and that it doesn’t matter that much. Our job is to make a recovery for you for the pain and suffering that can be proven. Not going to the doctor is a good way to prove that you are not hurting and that you don’t care. If you don’t care, the doctor may not care. It is very important for you to work hard to get well and to go to all of your appointments.

If you are in pain and you do not see a doctor, the insurance company and the jury will not believe that you are having pain.

Each time you go to the doctor and report that you are still having pain, your doctor makes an entry in his records. It is important for your doctor to have up-to-date information on your condition. Some clients get discouraged and do not see their doctor even though they are having pain. This may harm your claim. It is important that your doctor knows how you are feeling.

Who To Talk To
Do not talk about your case with anyone except this office and your doctors. If your own insurance company wants to talk about your case before they pay your medical bills, please refer them to us.

However, they didn’t take the actions they should have to protect their customers, and they didn’t properly train security to deal with fights. The result? When a fight broke out, one of our clients was seriously injured. We took legal action to help him get the compensation he deserved for his injuries.

We handle many different types of premises liability case:

  • Slip and fall accidents in stores, restaurants and bars

Quality Services at a Fair Rate
