Best Personal Injury Advice: 5 Things to Avoid

Best Personal Injury Advice: 5 Things To Avoid

As the founder of the Bottaro Law Firm, LLC, I have been blessed to handle thousands of car accident and other personal injury cases throughout New England. Our team has a passion for helping the injured achieve justice. In today’s blog, I would like to share 5 Things to Avoid In Your Personal Injury Case:


  1. Failing To Be Your Own Patient Advocate
    What your medical records state is “king” in your case. Therefore, it is important that you clearly communicate with all medical providers exactly where you are having pain and how it was from the personal injury. Getting an MRI and seeing a specialist can be a hassle, but is also super important to your case. These are the types of things we mean by saying that you must stick up for yourself and “be a great patient advocate for you!”
  2. Failing To Quickly “Lawyer Up”!
    The bottom line is that you need a great local personal injury law firm. An entire team dedicated and positioned to only standup for the injured; a firm that only handles plaintiff personal injury law and that has a solid track record of success and of community involvement. Oh yes, I do believe that is us at the Bottaro Law Firm, LLC! We want to be your lawyers; we have a passion for this and know that the studies prove that you have a chance to obtain over 3.5 times more money with a lawyer than without. Get us in your corner as soon as possible so you can avoid all the costly mistakes that you simply do not know about!
  3. Talking To Anyone Without Your Personal Injury Lawyer’s Advice
    This advice is similar to above but after you hire us, know that we want to communicate with you and get to know you. Keep us updated so we can help with what to do – and what not to do!
  4. Ignoring Medical Bills That Come To Your House
    One of the biggest reasons you need our help after a personal injury is to ensure your bills are properly paid so that you are not in debt and so that you can maximize your settlement. Medical bills can have deadlines and we love it when you promptly get us copies of your bills so we can help you!
  5. Posting To Social Media
    Nowadays, the first thing big insurance companies and their investigators and lawyers do when they get your claim is to look you up on the internet. What kind of person does your social media platforms project? What have you posted and written?  Insurance adjusters will do a deep dive into your personal life, searching your social media pages to see if you are posting about the accident. Even posting statements like “I’m ok” to reassure family and friends can be taken out of context by insurance adjusters. They can use this in your case to contradict your claim of being injured.

If you’ve been injured due to someone else’s negligence, I want to show you why 7’s the only way to go.
