Avoid Mistakes That Could Hurt Your Case

By not visiting a doctor when you're in pain, by not doing what your doctor tells you or by not keeping your doctor appointments, you are telling the insurance company, your doctor and a jury that your injury is not significant and that you're not in pain. When you visit the doctor, he or she keeps a record of your visit that includes details about your condition.

At the Law Offices of Joe Bornstein, we fight to get you the justice you deserve and understand how difficult it is to manage a personal injury that may involve chronic pain. Clients who are in pain sometimes decide not to see the doctor because they are discouraged. Don't make this mistake, as it may affect your claim. You should continue to see the doctor and let him or her know how you are feeling and always advise the doctor about any new medical problems that may arise.

And lastly, don't make the mistake of talking about your case with anybody but your attorney or doctor. If your own insurance company wants to talk about the case prior to paying your medical bills, you should refer them to your attorney.

In 50 years, we have helped more than 25,000 Mainers collect over $500 million in settlements and benefits. Turn to the experienced attorneys at the Law Offices of Joe Bornstein today and let us help you get the justice you deserve.
