Focus on recovery instead of insurance matters.

Whether you have been injured in a car wreck, been hurt at work, or fell at a business, you are likely to feel a sense of relief when you get an attorney to handle your case. You get someone who you know is on your side, who can answer questions, and who can help guide you through a complicated system.

At the same time, many clients who have struggled on their own for a while feel a loss as to what to do next once they finally reach out for help. When you have been dealing with a lot of confusing letters and phone calls, it can feel unnatural for those to stop. People feel that they should be doing something.

So, when a client asks what they should do next after they allow us to represent them, I always suggest two things: focus on recovering from your injuries and keep us updated about your treatment and progress.

It takes time as well as mental and emotional energy to recover from the injury and trauma of an
accident. By focusing on your recovery instead of stressing over insurance matters, you can more quickly go back to living your life, whether that means going back to work or picking up your grandchildren.

By keeping your attorney or case manager updated, you allow us to stay on top of your case. We need
to know where you are treating and how you are doing to document your losses and make sure your bills are paid. At Crocker Law Firm we usually touch base every couple of weeks, but you do not have to wait for us to call you. If you something has changed with your injury or treatment, give us a quick call to let us know.

Let us help you with your insurance claim, so you can focus on your health.
