Professionalism is the Word

I highly Recommend Gibson & Perkins.  I have used their services for approximately 6 years now and been through a few cases together with very positive outcomes.  Personally, I have used Paul Fellman and Walter Timby on those occasions.  Both, as a team & separately these Attorneys were wonderful to work with and easily accessible to reach if I had any questions.  Professionalism is the word that comes to mind to describe the firm, as a whole.  Always completely prepared for any surprises that may pop up during a trial.  They were well versed on all pertinent info pertaining to each case.  As I client, I always felt I was an integral part of the team, not an after-thought, that had to be brought up to speed a half hour before the trial started.  I could not recommend this firm and Mr. Fellman and Mr. Timby any higher.

Very Satisfied

I hired Paul Fellman after speeking to several different lawyers from different law firms because he was the most sincere. Paul did an excellent job on my landlord tenant issue I had on my rental property. He was there for me from the beginning to the end of the whole ordeal. I was very satisfied and I highly recommend him and his firm.

Common Personal Injury Claim Mistakes

Unfortunately, there are many ways you can unintentionally damage your personal injury claim. Please review the mistakes listed below to avoid making them in your own claim.

Not Seeking Out Medical Attention After the Accident

After being in a serious accident, the human body produces a large amount of the stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol. This is an ancient self-protective reaction, called the “fight or flight” response. It provides a temporarily surge of energy and strength that also prevents you from feeling the full impact of pain from any injuries you’ve sustained.

Thousands of years ago, this response enabled people to fight and/or flee threats, even while injured. These days, the stress hormones do more harm than good, because they can prevent injured people from realizing how badly they’ve been hurt.

Always assume you need to get medical attention after an automobile accident, slip and fall, or any other traumatic incident in which you may have been badly injured. You might have injuries you can’t see and can’t yet feel. It can take up to eighteen hours for the hormones to dissipate from your bloodstream, and if you wait that long before finding out you’ve got internal bleeding for example, you could endanger your life.

Going to the hospital will help protect your health, and it’s also going to protect the value of a personal injury claim. Getting a medical exam creates a record of your injuries, and the sooner you go, the closer the connection between your injuries and the accident.

Without an exam, the insurance company is likely to suggest you may not have been injured as badly as you say. If they succeed, they can reduce the amount of money they must pay you in compensation for your damages.

If this scenario seems unfair, that’s because it is. Insurance is supposed to help you through times of crisis, not take advantage of you. Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for insurance companies to look for ways to cut costs. Having an experienced personal injury lawyer by your side is the best way to protect the value of your claim.

    It’s a Mistake to Disregard Your Treatment Plan

    When you receive medical treatment and are discharged to begin the healing process, you’ll be given a treatment plan. This is a compilation of ways you can assist in your own recovery. It’s likely to include medication, such as antibiotics, which should be take according to schedule until it’s gone. It may also include occupational or another form of therapy, and other elements such as stretching or applying heat or cold to the area of injury.

    It’s important to adhere to whatever your doctor recommends you do to move your recovery along. Following your treatment plan is another way to help yourself recover and help protect your claim.

    If the insurance company finds out you’ve been skipping follow up appointments or physical therapy sessions, they may be able to reduce your claim’s value.

    You may wonder how your treatment plan could be relevant to the value of your claim, but insurance companies still employ investigators. They like to tell customers investigators help to save them money by preventing fraud, thereby keeping premiums as low as possible. But investigators also help insurance companies shift blame from them to the injured person.

    They do this by checking to see whether you’re following your treatment plan. If you aren’t, the insurance company may be able to blame you instead of your injuries for any difficulty you have recovering. The less blame that sticks to them, the less they have to pay out.

    Consider the example of an avid runner who is seriously injured in a car accident. Their treatment plan may instruct the runner to get plenty of rest and stop running until they’ve recovered. They may be told that the only activity they should engage in until their follow-up appointment is weekly physical therapy sessions.

    Imagine that the insurance company’s investigator sees this person running trails in the park when they shouldn’t be, and learn that physical therapy appointments are being missed? When it comes time to work out a compensation amount, the insurance company may suggest the person is not as injured as they claim because they are already running.

    If the recovery hits a snag, the company can say it’s not because the person was so badly injured, it’s because they didn’t follow their treatment plan. They’ll reason the person’s health struggle is not the company’s responsibility, it’s the injured persons, for neglecting their own care. The result is likely to lower the value of the claim.

    Don’t leave yourself vulnerable to the money-saving tactics of the insurance company. Stick to your treatment plan.
