March 20th, 2017| When starting something new, you may hear the advice to “fake it until you make it.” From a career standpoint, that’s pretty good advice, as demonstrating confidence in the workplace can be just as important as demonstrating competence. After all, most careers allow for trial and error. In other words, you can make mistakes, learn from them, and apply them to future opportunities. However, that definitely does not apply to personal injury claims. If you’ve been injured in an accident, you get one chance, and one chance only, to get your injury claim right. The insurance company representing the person who caused your injuries should be responsible for all expenses related to your accident. Their main motivation is minimizing your claim by paying out as little as possible for your injuries, and they’ve become really good at doing just that. All they have to do is convince you that their settlement offer is as good as it gets, and once you sign, they’re off the hook for any future expenses. More medical bills? Not their problem. Lost wages? You’re on your own. Compensation for pain and suffering? Forget about it. So how do you maximize your injury claim the first time?
