Mistakes to Avoid During the Claims Process

It is incredibly easy (and common) for personal injury claimants to jeopardize their cases inadvertently. Even a seemingly minor oversight or misguided statement early in the proceedings could hurt your chances of recovering a fair settlement.

Common mistakes to avoid during the claims process include:

  • Failing to document all physical injuries and their progression;

  • Failing to gather nursing home records before they can be altered or destroyed;

  • Letting the nursing home convince you they will handle the incident internally;

  • Relying on nursing home staff to gather evidence on your behalf; and

  • Accepting a settlement that won’t cover all the damages.

A Palm Beach Gardens nursing home abuse lawyer from Donaldson & Weston can help you avoid these mistakes by handling the logistics of your claim. We will take over all correspondence with the insurance company so they aren’t able to coerce you into making a costly error.

Seeking legal counsel as soon as possible will also allow you to focus on what matters most: your loved one’s health and wellbeing. Your case will proceed in good hands, and we will keep you informed every step of the way regarding the progress of your claim.
