The biggest mistakes an injured person can make after an accident.

Below are some of the biggest mistakes made by injured victims.  It is important to be aware of what not to do after you have been injured.

1.) Not being evaluated by EMS if you are injured to any extent.

2.) Not seeking medical attention at the Emergency Room immediately after the wreck if you are hurt.

3.) Not being totally honest with doctors regarding past medical history.  Tell them everything!

4.) Playing tough and not tell troopers, EMS personnel, and doctors each and every location of your pain.

5.) Talking with your doctor about legal stuff, instead of focusing only on the medical part.

6.) Not keeping all medical appointments.

7.) Only talking about the worst symptoms and keeping quiet regarding other symptoms.

8.) Not telling doctors about inability or limitation in working and not getting a work release if needed.

9.) Not doing exactly what the doctor says to do.

10.) Stopping medical treatment without doctor's consent.

11.) Not treating emotional injuries if they arise after the accident.  If you experience symptoms of depression and anxiety that you believe are being caused by your pain and disability, it is important for you to tell your doctor.

12.) Not consulting with an experienced personal injury attorney about your case if you are injured.  Be totally honest with him concerning the accident, your injuries, and any prior medical problems you had before the wreck.

13.) Thinking insurance adjusters are looking out for your family's best interest.
