Every marriage is not meant to last forever. No matter what the reasoning behind the divorce, it is important to have legal representation for each side. I almost lost everything because my former spouse said that he was taking care of things and that he would be fair about how the assets were divided. It took several weeks for me to find out what he was up to. It was then that I hired my own attorney and got what I deserved. You should never attempt to go through a divorce without a lawyer working on your side. On my site, I have listed several of the issues that can get overlooked if you are inexperienced with divorce documents and proceedings.
A car accident might have resulted in damage to your car, but it might have also caused you injuries and affected your finances. As a result, you might be in the process of filing a lawsuit. If you have never been involved in a car accident lawsuit, though, you could take missteps that sabotage your lawsuit and cause you to lose. Try to steer clear of these three mistakes.
1. Talking to the Person You Are Suing
The other person in the accident might attempt to call or email you about the events that are unfolding. You might feel inclined to hear them out, but this could be a mistake. You should only communicate through your lawyers so that there is no miscommunication regarding the situation. You should also ensure that you aren't talking to the other party's insurance company or attorney, either; ask your lawyer to be present whenever you are in contact with anyone related to the case.
2. Going by Memory
As your court date approaches, your thoughts are likely to be on a number of different topics. You might be trying to recover from the injuries caused by the accident and you're probably hoping that you will prevail in the case. During this time, it is not unnatural that you would forget things here and there about what happened. You might not remember if bushes obscured a traffic sign, for instance. You may forget the sequence of some events.
That is why it is very important to jot down or type what you recall as soon as possible. You might have a police report that was taken that day, and your lawyer might have already grilled you on what you remember, but having something down on paper can ensure that you don't forget something that could be important. You might also discover that you remember additional details while you wait to appear in court; those thoughts should be collected, as well.
3. Discussing through Social Media
Like most people, you are likely to have a accounts on different social media sites. You may talk about everything going on in your life, but this could be a problem if you are talking about the accident. You might not be aware that investigators employed by the other driver's representatives can go looking for anything that you're posting about the accident or your injuries. Don't post anything about the situation online so you don't sabotage your lawsuit.
If you can manage to steer clear of the errors above, you can feel more confident that you've got a solid case. Ask your car accident attorney for more insight about what you should be doing in order to make your lawsuit succeed.
