Don't Connect Past Injuries with Current Car Accident

If you get into a car accident, and subsequently seek compensation for your medical losses, knowledgeable San Francisco car accident lawyers advise not to exaggerate your losses. If you already suffer from medical conditions before your accident occurred, never connect the symptoms of any existing medical problems with your car accident. Doing so will only cause the claims adjuster or defense attorney to view your claim as exaggerated and disbelieve anything you say about your injuries and treatment. In most instances, such a case will have to go to trial--and not the settlement table--before you have the opportunity to recovery that you believe is "fair."

The best San Francisco car collision lawyers will tell you that these complications can be avoided by simply keeping an accurate written record of the medical losses that relate directly to your car accident. Your credibility will be enhanced at settlement time, resulting in much higher dividends.
