On Behalf of | Sep 19, 2019 | Personal Injury |

When a severe personal injury leaves you struggling with pain, recovery efforts and mounting debt, you need real information, not legal rhetoric. You have probably already unearthed a vast amount of data — some of it useful, much of it not — in your quest to find a solution. Now you are likely ready for simple words packed with actual information.

Our Orlando-based lawyers believe that sometimes the basics of a particular situation can help personal injury victims regain their focus. In turn, this leads to clearer thinking and good decisions. Whether you are considering a lawsuit or simply want a fair insurance settlement, the following list of do’s and don’ts can help you get back to basics and acquire the compensation you need.

  • Do: Keep logs of the events surrounding your injury and the incident that caused your harm

  • Don’t: Speak about your accident or your injury on social media

  • Don’t: Provide formal or casual statements to insurers, investigators or any other involved party
