Five Things You Need to Tell Your Motorcycle Lawyer…Even If They Are Embarrassing

There are things that are difficult to talk about with your spouse or your doctor, let alone your motorcycle accident lawyer. There are physical and emotional symptoms that you don’t want anyone to know about. You feel that you would rather suffer in silence than talk to your lawyer about your issues and potentially have your lawyer talk to the insurance company or present evidence in court about your personal problems.

We understand your desire to keep some things private, but before you make the decision not to discuss certain issues with those who want to help you fully recover from your bike crash injuries, we encourage you to consider the consequences.

What Could Happen If You Didn’t Talk About These Things

The following issues are personal and difficult to talk about. However, if you fail to mention them to your lawyer or you minimize their impact on your life, then you may never fully recover the fair damages that you are entitled to recover for your motorcycle accident injuries. Thus, it is important to talk to a lawyer about the following conditions if they were caused by your motorcycle accident injuries:

  • Sexual problems.
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder.
  • Bladder or bowel control problems.
  • Dependency on a spouse or another person.
  • Loss of independence in your daily activities.

Remember, you only get one opportunity to settle your case fairly. Once you settle your motorcycle accident claim, you will not be able to recover additional damages in the future. For that reason, it is important not to let embarrassment prevent you from making a full and fair recovery.

Talk to a Lawyer You Can Trust

Your lawyer is not going to tell anyone who shouldn’t know about your motorcycle accident injuries anything that you say in confidence. Of course, some information may need to be shared with the insurance company in order to recover a fair settlement, but that does not mean that your family and friends are going to know about your personal issues.
