The Scary Truth that Can Save Your Case
Entering the courtroom for the first time can be as scary as a haunted house: terms you’ve never heard before, laying your side of a story out for strangers, and the fears that come with an untold ending of your case. Likewise, as you can imagine, when an attorney doesn’t know what’s around each corner or what skeletons might emerge from the closet, it can also be extremely frightful.
Fortunately, to avoid such tales from the courtroom crypt, we’ve put together a list of tricks and treats to calm the nerves of all who get involved with a pending case.
- Document Everything – Right from the beginning take notes on everything you can think of. No attorney in their right mind would tell a client “that’s too much information” when it comes to the details of a case. You’ll only be sharing your notes with your attorney, so do your best not to leave any spooky detail out.
- Take a Tech Break – No one other than your attorney needs to know the details of your case or your opinions on the matter either. Social media is a fun way to communicate with friends but it’s scary how many times it’s also thwarted large settlement cases.
- Doctor’s Orders – Your health and safety are of the highest priority throughout a personal injury case. As such, it is important to follow your doctor’s orders to a “T” in order to monitor your health and progress. Notes taken by your doctor can help prove your case, but can also wreak havoc on your case if you’re not following their plans for wellness.
- Trust Yourself… and Your Attorney – There’s a reason you look to an attorney to help with your case so use their advice when it comes to all things regarding your case.
- Nothing but the Truth – Always, always, always tell the truth. Lies will only haunt you in any type of case, especially if it goes to trial.
Take it from us with years of experience in the courtroom; it doesn’t have to be as scary as a horror film. If you or someone you know is facing a personal injury case, no matter how scary it seems, we are always here to fend off the chills, shrieks, and occasionally judges, to help you get the recovery you deserve.
