Chances are, you have discussed the details of your case with one of our legal experts and generally understand our aim of securing compensation on your behalf.
But you might not know the complexities of the process ahead or what steps you can take to help your cause.

What You Can Do to Help
While we work to build your case, you can help us out by doing the following:
Staying Up to Date: Stay current on all emails and other correspondence from your legal team. As your case goes on, we might need to gather information about the accident, your ability to work, and your injury status. Be sure to let us know if anything at all changes.
Go to the Doctor: It is imperative that you follow medical instructions. Be sure to attend all follow-up medical visits. Missing a follow-up appointment or physical therapy session can be used against you to demonstrate that the injury is not as severe as you say.
Avoid Sharing Information: Do not share the details about your case, whether on social media or in person. You want to be sure that nothing can be used against you by the other party’s legal team.
