What mistakes hurt your case if you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident?

Legal Moment on FRESH RADIO


[phone ringing]
Receptionist: Cohen Highley
Announcer: And now the Cohen Highley Legal Moment on Fresh Radio.
Announcer: I’m here with Matt Reid from Cohen Highley Lawyers.  What mistakes hurt your case if you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident?
Matt Reid: Never refuse, disregard or fail to maintain your injury treatment or doctor’s advice.  It helps the insurance company shift the blame for your injuries to you and not the accident
Announcer: What else?
Matt Reid: Assume your insurance company is monitoring your social media.  If you are receiving insurance money for a back injury and post pictures of you jogging, you are helping them build a case against you.  Further to that, never lie or exaggerate.  If the insurance company can show you to be untruthful, they will try to bring everything into question.
Announcer: Is there any one common mistake people make?
Matt Reid: Trying to deal with the insurance company by yourself.  Insurance companies and adjusters are very skilled at minimizing the amount of treatment money you receive for injuries.  Without a lawyer representing your best interests, you likely won’t receive nearly as much money as you are entitled to.
Announcer: Thanks Matt. This has been the Cohen Highley Legal Moment.
Singers: Cohen Highley, we’re listening.  cohenhighley.com
