After being in a car wreck that was not your fault, there is nothing to
guarantee that you will receive compensation to pay for your damages.
Insurance companies may offer you a minimal amount, or nothing at all
if the liable party tries to blame you for the collision. If you want
to be treated fairly and seek deserved financial assistance for your injuries
and property damage, you will need to make a motor vehicle accident claim
that is effective.
Looking for Evidence Wherever It May Be
car accident claim will probably not go to trial, you should view the situation as
if it will, starting with honing your own investigative skills. Immediately
after the accident, if possible, take photographs of the scene and record
eyewitness testimonies. Insurers react to hard evidence more than speculation,
so you need to create a clear picture of what happened that shows you
were not liable.
Later on, your own medical treatment can work to your advantage. Doctor
notes and medical records are essentially irrefutable proof of your injuries
and how much it will cost to treat them. Keep in mind that your cost for
treatment now might not be a fraction of the final cost. If you require
ongoing rehabilitation, do not settle until you
really know what the ultimate total will be.
Bring It All Together
Holding a catalogue of useful evidence for your car wreck claim is one
thing, making it work to your advantage is another thing altogether. You
need to create a clear, concise argument as to why you are not liable
for the accident and why you deserve the compensation necessary for your
full or maximized recovery. Ideally, your case will be so well put together
that you are offered a fair and acceptable settlement, avoiding litigation
or a trial. When this is not an option, you must be ready to bring your
story to a judge and understand all pertaining legalities.
