Do you want to know five ways to ruin your personal injury case? Often times, people come to me, and they’ve basically ruined their entire personal injury case. How do they do it? One, they ignore their injuries and don’t seek proper medical care for the treatment that they need. Two, they give a recorded statement to the other driver’s insurance company, which pins them down to that set of facts forever. Three, they sign a medical authorization allowing the insurance company to get all sorts of records – even non-medical records – pertaining to conditions completely unrelated to the crash, and five, they sign a release before all their harms and losses have been completely brought to the forefront.
