Settling your claim too quickly.

It is important to wait until you have reached your maximum medical recovery or received a final prognosis from your doctor to ensure that you receive compensation for any future medical expenses and lost wages in your settlement. You should not be in a rush to settle your claim or enter into an agreement without first consulting with an experienced car accident attorney.

Posting on social media.

You do not want to post about the accident or your injuries on social media sites such as Facebook or Twitter. You even need to be careful what you post about your day-to-day life. The insurance adjuster will likely search your social media sites for evidence that will hurt your claim.  

Waiting too long.

You do not want to wait too long to file your claim or a lawsuit. If you delay, the statute of limitations for filing a claim could expire, and you may waive your right to compensation.

Not contacting an experienced car accident attorney.

By not retaining a Rhode Island car accident law firm soon after your crash, you limit his ability to investigate its cause, collect evidence, and help you build a strong claim for compensation.
