VIDEO TRANSCRIPTION: What are 5 Critical Mistakes Car Accident Victims Make
Hi. I’m Anthony Castelli. I’m an Ohio car accident attorney practicing Ohio Law for the last 32 years. I’d like to talk to you about 5 critical mistakes that car accident victims make in Columbus.
If you have been in a Columbus car accident, I don’t want you to make any of these 5 mistakes so let me go through them real quick with you.
1.Make sure you get a police report. Call the police to the scene and give them all your information. And make sure you get all the information from the other side. It’s a recipe for an abomination that you get wrong defendant, the wrong name if you don’t get the police to document that for you.
2.You’ve got to get a competent doctor. A lot of people go to this doctor, that doctor. The best doctors that you can go to for an orthopaedic problem are an orthopaedic specialist. If your problem is not orthopaedic, you want to go to another type of specialist. When you’re in the medical legal arena, you need a great doctor. You need to.
3.Give them a good history. Tell them everything that’s wrong with you. Don’t chintz on old stuff that you may have had. Tell them about how you got hurt in the car accident. Give him the event that caused it, and tell him where you’re hurt, from head to toe.
4.The other thing is no gaps in treatment. Follow your doctor’s advice, don’t suffer in silence, and make sure you get to the doctor on a timely basis.
5.Make sure you talk to an experienced car accident attorney that can guide you, answer your questions. Even if you don’t hire him, they can at least put you in the right direction.
So those are the 5 critical things that you need to do or you need to avoid so your Columbus car accident injury goes smooth and you get fully compensated.
