What Can Affect Your Personal Injury Claim?
While your lawyer is investigating the accident and your losses, it’s also important for you to know what other factors can affect your claim. One of those factors is the insurance company, as they’ll likely use tactics to try and give you less compensation than you deserve. They may ask for an official statement from you when you don’t know the full extent of your injuries. They can use this statement to try and reduce your compensation. Insurance companies use these tactics because they’re protecting their bottom line, not yours. Other factors that can affect your claim include:
- Social Media Use. Posting anything on your social media regarding your case or your injuries may not be in your best interests because these could be used against you. When you’re involved in a personal injury case, consider setting your social media accounts to private, not posting about your case, and keeping your other posts to a minimum.
- Comparative Negligence. When you’re seeking compensation, you need to show that the other party was at fault for your injuries. But they may try to claim that you were partially responsible for the accident or your injuries as well. Partial fault can reduce the compensation you can recover.
