You’ve suffered personal injuries and have hired a qualified personal injury lawyer. Is your job done? No. It’s just beginning. Here are some rules to help you protect your own interests as we work together to pursue your claim for personal injury compensation.
One. Tell the truth. This should need no elaboration. Whether you are talking to us, making a report, filling out a form, or testifying in deposition or at trial, the truth is required.
Two. Don’t talk about your case with anyone. Yes, do tell your doctors and other health care providers about where it hurts, but don’t talk about whose car hit whose, or who was at fault. It’s not germane to your care and perhaps the doctor is not going to take accurate notes about it. Although we should be able to keep these kinds of statements out of court, the other side will see them, and if they conflict with your assertions in the case, watch out! It could undercut a potential settlement.
Generally, anything you say to someone else about your case can be repeated back to you on the record, in court. Perhaps they don’t get it quite right. So please let us do the talking.
