Typically, our clients are our partners as we go about the business of seeing a successful resolution to a personal injury case. That is not always the case, though. There are times when a client can become their own worst enemy. Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to minimize that possibility. Here are a few tips to help our New Orleans motorcycle accident lawyers as we set out to help you find closure to what was likely a stressful life event.

Remember the importance of evidence. When you actively preserve your evidence for trial, including photographs, witness contact information, copies of video surveillance, police reports, accident location, and other physical evidence, it can only benefit your goals. We can make good use of this type of evidence, often to the extent of avoiding long delays when there are questions about fact and fiction.

Keep in mind that social media is designed to be social. Refrain from posting to social media any kind of information, whether it’s a status update or pictures from the weekend, that could jeopardize your case. Consider tightening your security features and remember that even with the tightest privacy settings, aggressive investigators can still sometimes access your information and use it in a way that is false. Our motorcycle accident attorneys encourage clients to assume nothing is private on social media.

Be sure to keep all of your appointments regarding your medical care. Be sure to leave with the necessary paperwork that substantiates your claims and serves as a timestamp of sorts to prove you were there.

Also, try to keep in mind the golden rule to treat others the way you would like to be treated. That means remaining polite and honest with anyone you see as “the other side.” A good impression still matters and the old adage of getting more flies with honey instead of vinegar is just good advice.

And finally, enlist the guidance of an experienced, aggressive, and skilled New Orleans personal injury lawyer who will guide you throughout the entire process effectively and efficiently.
