4 Ways To Get More Money Out Of Your Auto Accident Claim
by Jo Rodriquez
Auto accident claims are important to follow through on, especially if you have been injured or your vehicle has been badly damaged. This will ensure that you receive proper compensation for the accident that was caused by another party. Here are four ways to ensure that you get the most money possible out of your claim:
Explain All Pain to Your Doctor: All the pain that you are experiencing needs to be reported to your doctor. This will ensure that they are taking thorough notes on your injuries and providing you with proper treatments that will be covered by insurance later on in your case most likely. If you aren't reporting even the slightest of pain that you are experiencing, then your doctor's notes won't be as thorough and it will be more difficult for them to take the stand for you if you proceed to court for your claim.
Listen to Your Doctor: If your doctor prescribe you a specific type of medication or asks you to visit other specialists for certain injuries that you have sustained, it's important that you follow through. If you do not follow through on listening to your doctor, then you won't be seen as having as bad of injuries as you claim. The judge won't take you as seriously and neither will the insurance company providing you with your compensation.
Take Pictures: Immediately after the accident, you should take pictures of your injuries if you can, as well as damages to your vehicle. By doing this, you are providing further evidence to be used to help you settle your claim, especially if you must go to court. You should also take pictures of your visible injuries if they become worse over time in order to provide further evidence of your injury's progression.
Hire a Lawyer: Finally, you want to be sure that you hire a lawyer (like those at Gibbs and Parnell). A lawyer has all the right tools and experiences to know how to put the evidence together and defend your case properly. In the end, their job is to ensure that you receive the most compensation possible out of your claim.
By knowing these four ways to get the most money out of your auto accident claim, you can be sure that you are being thorough with your claim and guaranteeing that all damages, pain and suffering that you have gone through are compensated for in the end.
