Do’s and Don’ts in a Lawsuit

Posted by Sandra Worthington | Sep 25, 2015 | 0 Comments

While no one looks forward to being involved in a personal injury lawsuit, keeping in mind some simple do's and don'ts should help to make your case as simple as possible.

  • DO keep all appointments regarding your case, especially those with your lawyer and your doctor(s).
  • DON'T keep any information about your injuries from either your lawyer or your doctor, even if you think this information is obvious.
  • DO keep accurate records of your expenses (especially your prescriptions), any time you miss from work, and all other out‑of‑pocket costs related to your case. Receipts are helpful.
  • DON'T forget that the defend­ant's insurance company is on the other side of your case. It does not represent you and it does not have your best interests in mind.
  • DO maintain contact with your lawyer, ask about anything you do not understand, and communicate your thoughts and concerns. Remember that your lawyer's paralegal can answer many questions.
  • DON'T listen to legal advice from friends, family, and other amateurs. You hired your lawyer because he or she is the expert.
  • DON'T discuss your case with strangers.
  • DO keep a positive attitude.
