Not Keeping Enough Documentation

Having ample resources to prove the destruction medical malpractice has had on your life is important to your claim. So, failing to journal about everything you are going through each day is a missed opportunity.

Social Media

Until your claim has been completed staying off social media platforms where you could unintentionally post something that can be used against you is good practice.

Not Following Treatment Program

If you are not making it to your appointments or if you are not taking medications or participating in therapy you were prescribed then an argument can be made that you were not harmed. As such, there is no legitimate reason to file a claim.

Giving Up Evidence

An agent from the medical malpractice insurance your provider has may reach out to you and ask for certain pieces of information for an investigation they are launching. Do not be too willing to cooperate. Only provide information if your Jackson personal injury attorney has advised you to do so.
