Personal Injury CaseIf you’ve been injured in an accident or due to another person’s negligence and the responsible party’s insurance contacts you for details about the incident, your first thought may be that the insurance company is trying to be helpful. The duty of a claims adjuster is to limit the amount of money for which the insurance company is liable— not to offer you a fair settlement.

Many claims adjusters will ask that these phone interviews be recorded for quality control, but they are really making an attempt to gather evidence that can be used to excuse their company from liability. Always speak to a reputable injury attorney before communicating with any insurance company about your injury case in order to protect yourself from being caught in this trap.

Refuse to Give a Recorded Statement

Maximize the Value of Personal Injury CaseThere are a lot of things that you need to do in order to help prepare your personal injury case as well as things that you should avoid at all costs. If you review your case with an injury lawyer, he or she will probably ask you to provide specific information and avoid issuing any statements to anyone without preparation. Everything that you do and say following your accident can be used to build your case or to tear it down. Before you proceed with your case, be sure to collect the following information and avoid the common pitfalls that harm many peoples’ injury cases.

What to Do in Order to Support your Case

Make sure that you get pictures of the scene of the accident, your injuries and any damage done to your property, as in an automobile accident. These pictures will not only be useful in proving fault, but in establishing the severity your injuries and the amount of damage done to your property so that an accurate claim can be calculated. Make sure that you get the medical treatment that you need and no more so that you do not risk needing to pay additional costs that are not substantiated in your claim.

Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers recently settled a personal injury case case involving a child who sustained deep laceration to the roof of her mouth that resulted from a piece of glass that was on her pizza.

Child Cuts Mouth On Shard Of Glass Embedded On PizzaThe scary ordeal occurred at a well known when the girl and her family went out for dinner at a well-known pizza chain.  After taking her first bite of pizza, our client  received severe lacerations to the roof of her mouth.  After spitting out the pizza, her parents were shocked to see a large chard of clear glass.

An emergency room physician used stitches to close the wound and stop the bleed caused from the laceration and an oral surgeon  removed the stitches several weeks later.

Client Reviews

  • Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case. In addition, Jonathan was understanding and patient pertaining to any of my questions or concerns. I was very happy with the end result and I highly recommend Jonathan Rosenfeld.
  • Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own.
  • This lawyer really helped me get compensation for my motorcycle accident case. I know there is no way that I could have gotten anywhere near the amount that Mr. Rosenfeld was able to get to settle my case. Thank you.
  • Jonathan helped my family heal and get compensation after our child was suffered a life threatening injury at daycare. He was sympathetic and in constant contact with us letting us know all he knew every step of the way. We were so blessed to find Jonathan!
  • Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial.
