Personal Injury Case: Signing Documents

Our Ohio personal injury attorneys provide clients with helpful tips to reference throughout the course of their personal injury claim. We have decided to post those tips through our blog to help others navigate the legal process so they receive the best possible outcome in the end – the compensation that they deserve.

One of the important tips that we tell our personal injury clients is to never sign a document without having their lawyer look over it first. As a client, oftentimes you do not spend as much time as your lawyer does in the legal space. You could possibly sign a document that allows the insurance company to access your medical records, or give them the ability to access other types of documents that are crucial to the success of your personal injury case.

DO NOT SIGN any documents until you have received your lawyer’s instructions or approval.

This rule applies to all different types of injury claims, whether it is a car accident, child accident, or a work injury accident.

A good rule of thumb is to have your attorney look over all documents before signing them first. They will be happy to do this, and doing so will make your life easier as well. Your attorney will even tell you that they will be the contact for the insurance company or insurance adjuster during the case. This not only helps make your case stronger as your lawyer can prevent the insurance company from taking advantage of you, but it also makes the process much easier for you. Taking the weight and worry off of your shoulders is the goal of the attorneys at the Charles E. Boyk Law Offices, LLC.
