Question:

What are some common mistakes people make after a burn injury?

Answer:

What are some of the most common mistakes that people make when they have a burn injury, particularly in Arizona? In fact, that question has been posed before to one of our attorneys. Our attorney answered that question by saying the number one most common mistake is that people think that we’ll just see how things shake out before we even talk to an attorney. Now, there’s nothing terribly wrong with seeing how the other insurance company is going to treat you, but the reason why you don’t want to wait to at least talk to a lawyer or somebody in a law firm early on is because the insurance adjustor is going to be your best friend at first.

They’ve been trained to control you in one of two ways: being very nice, or if that doesn’t work, being very nasty. You’ll get one of those versions. Typically, if you have a serious burn injury, you’ll get the very nice treatment. They know that your case could be worth a lot of money. If you get the very nice treatment, they’ll even say, “Why would you want to call a lawyer? All they’re going to do is take most of your money. You don’t want that and I’m so nice. You know that because I’m so nice, it’ll all work out. We’ll pay you a fair amount in the end.” By the time you find out that that’s not true, your case could be damaged.

Call us early on. You don’t have to hire us right away but at least call us right away. We’ll have one of our attorneys analyze your specific situation. We can warn you about some other mistakes that might happen. Then if you want to go ahead and test the water with the insurance adjustor, at least you’ll be warned about the tricks that they often do and what happens but there’s so many mistakes that can happen.

The best thing to do is just call us. We’ll have one of our attorneys analyze your case together with you. Then the statistics from the insurance company’s own statistics shows that if a person calls and speaks to a lawyer just once, even if they don’t hire them, they settle their case for significantly more money than if they never talk to a lawyer. At least make that call. Do yourself a favor. It can’t hurt. Remember the call is free, the information is free, and we’re here to help you.
