If you have been injured in a scaffolding accident and you want to get compensated for it, there are things that you should refrain from doing because they can hurt your claim. When you’re trying to get compensation for scaffolding accident, you may inadvertently do things that might make it impossible for you to get any money that you are otherwise owed. So here are some tips that you should use to help you have a better chance.
Don’t speak with anyone about the claim when trying to get compensation for scaffolding accident injuries
Keep in mind that the insurance company of the defendant will be trying to collect a lot of information regarding the claim. This information that they get is going to be used to deny fall or liability for the claim or even to minimise the compensation amount that you receive from your accident. So don’t talk to anybody about the claim, otherwise you may discover that you’re not getting what you deserve or you’re not getting anything at all.
Keep doctor appointments
One of the biggest things that you should do is make sure that you are keeping your appointments with your doctors. Remember that the insurance company is going to use everything that they can to make sure that you don’t receive what you deserve. If they see that you’re not going to the doctor, they are vendor believe that you’re not really injured even though you may be. So no matter what it takes, make sure that you are going to the doctor’s even if you have to have someone else take you.
Write down your symptoms
Instead of relying on your memory about how you are feeling, keeping a record of how you are feeling is a better idea. This is going to help you with your case and its also going to be very therapeutic for you. Make sure that you are keeping it up to date and writing down everything that you are feeling. This way, one someone asks you about your symptoms from the accident, IQ can tell them exactly what you are feeling and when you felt it. Make sure that you put dates on the days that you are feeling the symptoms so that you can look at your progress.
