Protecting Your Car Accident Insurance Claim
1. Document all aspects of the accident.
Now is the time to take advantage of the built-in camera in your cellphone. Photos of both cars, road signage and injuries will be necessary to prove your claim.
2. Complete a police report.
Having a police officer at the scene will require you to submit the necessary information for a report. This official documentation will solidify your claim.
3. Seek a doctor’s care.
You may feel that you have survived the accident without injury; however, certain damage may not reveal itself until days have passed. Claims of soft tissue damage or TBIs are difficult to substantiate without a doctor’s validation.
4. Follow the doctor’s medical advice.
It is hard to receive compensation for medical treatment if you did not seek treatment or follow through with the medical professional’s suggestions.
5. Retain an attorney.
Personal injury attorneys have extensive experience in challenging insurance companies when these businesses stonewall their clients. We recognized tactics commonly used by these companies and will advocate on your behalf.
