  • Filing an Auto Accident Claim Shouldn't Change How You Live Your Life

    If you've been hurt in a motor vehicle collision and you plan to make a personal injury claim, you may be tempted to wonder how is this going to change my life. How much medical treatment do I need? When should I go back to work? How will these decisions affect my case?" Our answer to this question is: "Live your life as if you weren't making a claim."

    Whether you need more medical treatment, and whether you're capable of returning to work, are questions that should be answered by your doctors and by listening to your own body. There is no "right" way to live your life after a car accident. If you do not need more medical treatment, then there's no need to obtain it. And if you feel well enough to return to your job and earn a living, then by all means you should.

    If your case goes to trial and ends up in front of a jury, there won't be a problem when we (your lawyers) tell the jury that you avoided obtaining costly medical treatment that wasn't necessary. And there's no problem in telling the jury that you fought hard to live your life normally and return to your job as soon as possible. Behavior like that may even make the jury like you more as a person, if they see that you've fought hard to get your life back to normal.

    If you have been hurt in an auto accident by someone else's negligence, and need advice on how to proceed, speak with an injury attorneys at Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata & Siegel, P.C.
