How to Preserve Your South Carolina Personal Injury Claim (Part B)

Complete Your Medical Treatment

After an accident, completing the full course of medical treatment your doctor prescribes is extremely important. Part of the evidence your Charleston injury attorney will use in your case is your medical documentation. If these documents show that you missed appointments or failed to follow your doctor's instructions, the insurance company may use this against you to prove that you weren't really hurt.

Some people may begin to feel better after a few weeks of treatment, and decide to stop seeing their doctor. Even so, some injuries take a while to heal. Your doctor will let you know when you have recovered and can stop your treatment.

Be Careful What You Tell the Insurance Company

Right after your accident, an insurance adjuster for the other party will contact you to hear your side of the story regarding the accident. This representative is trained to ask leading questions that could make you admit fault for the accident or even cause you to say things you don't mean. They may even ask to record your statement so that what you say can be used against you later.

You do not have to allow the insurance adjuster to record your conversations.
If you retain the services of a Charleston injury attorney, they can communicate with the insurance company on your behalf.
