Don’t Share Your Injury "Feelings"
If someone asks, “How are you doing?” keep a low profile by saying, “I’m shaken up”. The truth of the matter is you don’t know what is or isn’t wrong with you at this early stage. Besides, you don’t want to make statements while in shock and later have to refute them after seeking the advice of a medical professional.
We have had clients that were in a serious accident but allowed pride or bravado to govern their reactions --- so when asked to sit down or to take treatment --- responded by saying "I am ok" or "I am fine" or "I don't need help". Later, when a personal claim is filed, such remarks are used against the injured person by the insurance company.
