Handling Your Injuries After an Accident

A person injured because of someone else’s negligence may be eligible to file for financial compensation to cover the costs associated with his or her injury. However, before the individual can pursue a claim, that person is responsible for ensuring that he or she has properly cared for his or her injuries. Claimants have a basic responsibility to care for themselves after personal injury accidents. Allowing a condition to worsen may be seen as an illegal attempt to increase compensation awarded in a lawsuit.

If you or someone you love has sustained an injury due to another person’s reckless or negligent conduct, we may be able to help pursue financial compensation. To learn more about how to prepare for these claims, contact a New York injury attorney of Hach & Rose, LLP today at (212) 779-0057.

A Claimant’s Responsibilities After an Injury

The individual should be allowed to pursue compensation for his or her injuries as long as a claimant reasonably takes action to improve his or her condition after an accident. However, the following errors may prevent a claimant from filing for full compensation:

  • Knowingly engaging in activities or work that could worsen an injury
  • Failing to receive prompt medical care for a noticeable injury
  • Ignoring a doctor’s treatment or recovery instructions

These mistakes can significantly reduce the compensation an injured individual may be eligible to seek through a personal injury claim.
