Welcome to the Snellings Law PC Blog
Helping your attorney collect evidence to document and prove every aspect of your claim is critical to recovering full value. In fact, that is one of the most important concepts we cover during our new client meeting. Usually, we find that most people understand the importance of evidence in proving a claim or position from reading books, watching television shows, and even in trying to prove our own points during an argument. We spend significant time with our clients on what types of evidence are most persuasive and are admissible in Court.
One thing I have seen over and over again when I sit down with injury victims is how few people report each and every injury and symptom to their treatment providers. Most of our clients tend to focus on the one or two injuries causing them the most pain or worry.
In the immediate aftermath of a crash, adrenaline can take over. It pumps through our veins and can mask the severity of injuries we have suffered. Many times, it is only after our body has processed the adrenaline that we begin to truly feel the severity of the pain.
In our fast-paced society, each of us has probably signed a document or clicked on a website “agreeing to terms” without first reading the fine print. I know I am certainly guilty of the latter. When it comes to injury claims, many adjusters will try and take advantage of these lazy attitudes and hope that we simply rely on them to tell us what the documents say.
The odds are that each of us will be involved in a car crash at some point in our lives. According to an article by CarInsurance.com, the average driver will be involved in a crash about once every 17.9 years. If you are involved in a crash due to someone else’s negligence, it is very likely you will be receiving a phone call from the at-fault person’s insurance adjuster asking for a recorded statement.
