The following are seven ways to sabotage your own personal injury claims.

If you act as soon as possible following an accident at work, a car accident, a dog bite, or a trip and fall and pursue your case with the assistance of an attorney, the value of your personal injury claim will always be at its highest. At Invicta, we strive to provide the best value for each and every one of our clients. Here are seven methods plaintiffs frequently use to undermine the strength of even the most compelling cases of personal injury claims.

  1. Make up a false medical history

There is a misconception that if your injury was sustained previously, insurance companies are not obligated to reimburse you. This is untrue; insurance firms work incredibly hard to survive! In actuality, insurance providers cannot refuse coverage due to pre-existing conditions.

Tell your lawyer and your physicians the truth about any prior injuries you may have.

When the defendant exacerbates your pre-existing ailments, you are truly entitled to compensation in the UK. Being an eggshell plaintiff is what it’s called. I’ve never encountered a pre-existing injury I didn’t like in my work as a personal injury attorney in the UK.

  1. Miss out on your doctor’s or treatment appointments

Insurance firms always repeat the same refrain: injured people receive medical attention, but the uninjured skip appointments. Treat consistently. It expedites your recovery and maintains the case’s worth.

  1. Continue to drive even after suffering injuries in a car crash.

If you are hurt, you should dial the helpline and ask for an ambulance. Walking it off and delaying your decision will not help you.

It is never successful to try to conceal a history of earlier injuries. You won’t benefit from “walking it off” and putting off getting treatment. The new practise is to create a “information exchange only” report that does not pinpoint who caused the accident if the responding police officers notice that you are refusing medical attention. This could increase the likelihood that your injury attorney will need to launch a lawsuit in order to prove your case, needlessly driving up costs and lengthening the time it takes to resolve the case.

  1. Disregard any restrictions your medical professionals have placed on you due of your injury.

The fact that a doctor orders “no lifting” and a client determines they are all healthy enough to work out has resulted in the loss of countless lawsuits. In some cases, insurance companies even employ cunning photographers to follow claimants and record. Insurance firms have even been known to employ shady photographers to follow and record plaintiffs in high-profile cases (known as “Sort of post Rosa” film). There is nothing worse than having to show a jury a video of a defendant bench pressing weights despite having a back injury!

  1. Modify your narrative

Keep your account of the accident’s specifics constant. Inconsistencies will be used by the defence to suggest that something is false. Writing down notes as soon as possible after the event happens will assist you remember the specifics of the situation.

  1. Inform others about your injury on social media.

These days, insurance companies are very adept at using social media. The most typical error clients commit is uploading a picture of their totaled vehicle with a comment like, “I’m very glad that everyone is safe.” The insurance company will try to infer that you admitted you were not harmed at the date of the social media post and that any treatment after that day is fraudulent, even though we all know this is code for “Thank God nobody died.” Whenever you have an accident, it is preferable to avoid posting it online.

  1. Ignore advice from medical professionals and attorneys while a case is in court or a settlement is being negotiated.

This is a major issue. Many of our clients disregard the suggestions and recommendations we offer. There is a reason you retained legal counsel. I frequently use the comparison of taxi drivers when speaking with clients about how lawyers operate. You let us know where you wish to go after you. You let us know your destination, and then we’ll determine the most efficient path for you.

Our experienced and skilled personal injury solicitors have traveled every avenue leading to a settlement. We can let you know which paths will get you there quickly and easily, and which ones will be more difficult. Whenever we suggest a course of action, you can rely on us to have one main objective in mind: to secure you the highest settlement possible for your case. We are supporting you.

Accidents can be perplexing, upsetting, and traumatic.

Hiring a personal injury attorney is typically the last thing you want to do after a car accident, given the emotional, physical, and financial strains that ensue.
