Here is some important advice for our personal injury clients:
Keep Us Informed
Your case will not be settled until all damages have been determined. This
process depends on the extent of your injuries and may take several months.
If litigation becomes necessary, the process may take longer. Your
cooperation is essential in making certain that your case proceeds smoothly.
Inform us immediately of any new information including change of address,
telephone number, and any work-related changes.
Your Automobile Insurance
As soon as possible please provide our office with a copy of your automobile
insurance declaration sheet showing what coverage you have. This is very
important. If you have any questions about this please call our office at
Do Not Provide Statements
Do not give statements (written, recorded, or oral) to anyone concerning
your accident or injuries other than your attorney or treating physicians.
If anyone calls you regarding the accident, obtain their name and phone
number and advise them that your attorney will contact them.
Do Not Sign Any Paperwork
Do not sign any papers. Do not sign any statements, forms, reports or any
other documents unless we tell you to do so. If you are ever in doubt, call
We need photos of the damage to the vehicle you were in and of any visible
injuries you received, such as cuts, bruises or lacerations. If you cannot
take the photos, call our office and we will arrange for our investigator to
have the photographs taken.
Follow Your Doctor's Advice
While seeking treatment for your injuries please follow the advice of your
doctors. Do not miss appointments. Do not make any incorrect statements
about prior injuries or accidents to any doctor who treats or examines you.
Keep Records and Receipts
Keep receipts of all out-of-pocket expenses related to your injuries such as
transportation costs, mileage to and from the doctor/hospital, home care,
prescription medication, orthopedic collars, casts or braces etc. Receipts
must be dated and contain complete vendor identification. Please mail us
copies of the same in order for us to keep your file comprehensive.
If you have group medical insurance through your work or your spouse's
employment, be sure to obtain the information regarding the group insurance
and give it to your doctor so he may process it for you.
California Law requires that you do everything possible in order to keep
your expenses reasonable. This means that when you rent a vehicle, you
should rent one for a reasonable price. Insurance companies will generally
reimburse rental expenses of $15.00 to $20.00 per day. They will not pay for
the insurance sold by the rental company.
If you miss time from work due to the accident you are entitled to be
compensated for this loss. In order for us to obtain maximum compensation
for you we will need a letter from your employer verifying the time you lost
and the amount you earn. If you used up sick time, vacation time or holiday
time from your job due to the accident but received your regular pay in full
or in part, there is still a loss to you and you are entitled to be
compensated for it. Copies of check stubs and tax returns are helpful in
establishing your loss of earnings. Injury clients should also be mindful
that lost or delayed promotions and opportunities, as a result of injuries
suffered, are also compensable.
If you are self-employed we will need other documents to verify the loss.
Contact us immediately in this regard.
Document Your Pain
Since a component part of your claim for damages is the disruption of your
daily life, a written record of these disruptions, in the form of a diary or
journal, will help you remember specifics. These disruptions may include
activity restrictions (from completing house chores to lifting certain
objects) as well as pain causing you to be bedridden.
