5 Common Mistakes That Plaintiffs Make In Personal Injury Cases


Principal Attorney, James Swartz, discusses 5 common mistakes that plaintiffs make when pursuing their personal injury case.

  1. Following up with consistent medical care
  2. STAY AWAY from Social Media!
  3. Don’t negotiate directly with the insurance companies. Leave
  4. Make sure you hire a trial attorney, not an attorney that is involved only litigation.
  5. Be up front with your attorney. Anything that is hidden will eventually be revealed during a case.
