Things to Be Aware of When Posting About Your Case on Facebook

If you currently have an active injury case, there are some things to be aware of with social media concerning your case. Approximately two-thirds of adults in the US use social media sites such as Twitter, Instagram and Facebook according to the Pew Research Center. It may seem natural to share with your family and friends’ things that happen in your day to day life. However, be cautious in what you share on social media. In many instances, what you share on online can be used against you to dispute a personal injury claim. The Internet is often the first-place insurance companies look to investigate a claim. Your posts can be used against you to dispute the severity of your injuries, the day the accident took place and where.

Here are a few things to avoid posting to protect your personal injury claim thereby helping your accident attorney to win your case.

Avoid posting:

  • Status updates indicating you can participate in activities contrary to your injuries or treatment plan.
  • Photos or videos of you engaging in physical activity that would disprove the injuries you claim to have.
  • Photos of you drinking. This could indicate you enjoy alcohol and perhaps you were driving drunk.
  • Never post anything that sounds like you admitting fault or anything that could cast doubt that you are partially to blame.
  • Do not post about your finances.
  • Avoid posting negative comments about the insurance company.
  • Do not give information about when you return to work.

 

Also, be aware of what kinds of things your friends post about you and monitor this to help your case.

Why Hire Personal Injury Attorney Brent Gordon

Why Hire Personal Injury Attorney Brent Gordon

Hire Personal Injury Attorney, Brent GordonAfter you’ve been in an accident, you may wonder if you should hire a personal injury attorney. Many people would like to believe they can handle their case on their own. There is a lot more to know than you may think. Here are a few reasons you should hire personal injury attorney, Brent Gordon to handle your case.

A personal injury attorney can get you a lot more money by:

  • Negotiating a larger settlement than you could on your own;
  • Reducing payouts from your settlement to health insurers, hospitals, and doctors;
  • Finding more insurance coverage to cover your damages when the negligent driver is uninsured or under insured.

Here are a few real examples of cases Brent Gordon has settled that illustrate how much more money an attorney can get for you.

Case 1: Alone the client would receive $7,000. With Brent Gordon, the client received $29,000.

Case 2: Working alone the client would receive $13,000. Working with Brent Gordon, the client received $40,000 in compensation.

Case 3: On their own the client would receive $30,000. With the help of Brent Gordon, the client received $102,000.

Case 4: Without an attorney the client would receive $10,000. Brent Gordon was able to get $450,000 in compensation.

Internal documents from one auto insurance company showed that it paid five times more money to people who hired an attorney than to those who did not have an attorney.

Why can a personal injury attorney get you a lot more money?

An attorney can negotiate a larger settlement than you can on your own for two reasons:

First, an attorney knows what your case is worth. You would never sell your home without having it appraised. Smart people know that an attorney can get fair compensation for you because they know what your case is worth. You see, most people don’t know what type of damages they are entitled to recover or how much. As a result, they end up relying on the insurance company to tell them the value of their claim. Many factors influence the value of a claim. Hiring an attorney ensures that you have someone in your corner and you get what you deserve.

Second, an attorney has the power to file a lawsuit against a negligent driver. A skilled attorney brings a credible threat of a lawsuit and judgment if necessary. As Teddy Roosevelt said, “Talk softly and carry a big stick.” Is your big stick ready to litigate if necessary to compel a fair result?

A personal injury attorney can get your medical bills paid

We will work to make sure your bills are paid. Bills could be paid by medical payment coverage, workers compensation, health insurance, Medicaid, or Medicare. Let us increase the amount of money that goes in your pocket.

Once the bills are paid, the insurer that paid the bills will make a claim against your accident settlement proceeds.  Brent Gordon Law Firm can minimize the amount these insurers take from your settlement proceeds by employing legal doctrines such as the made whole doctrine, the common fund doctrine, and federal anti-lien statutes.

Additionally, many clients do not have health insurance and have unpaid medical bills they owe their physicians.  We have worked with many hospitals and physicians in the southeast Idaho area over the years and have developed a reputation of integrity and honesty.  Medical providers will work with us to reduce charges in difficult situations.

For example, a recent client incurred $84,000 of medical bills.  The negligent driver only had minimum liability policy limits of $25,000.  Brent Gordon was able to work with providers who agreed to significantly reduce their charges.  We were able to pay all of the client’s medical bills and put $7,000 in the client’s pocket.

A personal injury attorney can fight the insurance company so you get the compensation you deserve

Finding insurance to cover your damages is a complex task. Even attorneys who handle car accident cases may be unaware of the various insurance policies that could potentially cover your damages. Finding insurance is sometimes the most critical job of an attorney because many times people are injured by someone with too little or no insurance.

Most people, including many attorneys, do not know what insurance is available to cover their damages. You need someone with experience who focuses on personal injury cases to uncover all possible sources of recovery. We have represented clients who were told by other attorneys that there was no insurance coverage for their accident and have found coverage for them to pay for their damages. Finding an experienced attorney who is knowledgeable about insurance coverage issues can put a lot of extra money in your pocket.
