Atlanta Personal Injury Attorney Shares Mistakes to Avoid in a Personal Injury Case

There’s a lot that goes into building a successful personal injury case; from evidence and expert witness testimony to documentation of medical bills and missed work time, the list is endless. Because this list is so exhaustive, it can be easy to slip up and miss something in the early stages of your claim. 

To give your personal injury case its best chance of success, Atlanta personal injury attorney Shane Smith recommends these quick tips: 

  • Keep everything - Don’t throw away any documents, receipts, bills, or reports relating to your injury, the damages, or your accident.
  • Stay away from social media - Don’t talk about your case on Facebook or Twitter, and don’t post photos of your injury.
  • Never agree to a recorded statement - Unless you’ve spoken with an attorney and have discussed how it will affect your case, don’t give an on-record statement with an insurance representative.
  • Don’t settle - Until you’ve met with legal counsel and they have estimated the amount of compensation you may be due, you should not sign or agree to any sort of settlement. 

Learn about how social media can ruin your personal injury case, and call 770-487-8999, 770-HURT-999 or 404-513-5415 to speak with an experienced Atlanta personal injury attorney at the Law Offices of Shane Smith today.
