How to Prepare for a Personal Injury Claim

Click below to share this on social media:

When you have been injured in an accident and want to hold the party who harmed you accountable for his or her negligent actions, filing a personal injury claim could be your best option. A successful claim can help you obtain the compensation you need to cover your losses.

Understandably, many injury victims feel intimidated at the thought of filing a lawsuit. That’s why we’ve described the claim process for you below. We want you to feel prepared for what’s to come. For additional help, call our firm as soon as you can.

Gathering Evidence to Establish Fault

Possibly the most important aspect of the personal injury claim process is gathering evidence that supports that the party in question was, in fact, irresponsible or careless and that his or her actions are directly responsible for your injuries. The type of accident you were involved in will determine what types of evidence will help your case.

For example, if you were involved in a motor vehicle collision, video footage, vehicle inspection reports, and witness statements may shed light on the events of the accident.

How Much Is Your Claim Worth?

Next, we will begin to examine your economic and non-economic damages to determine how your injuries have impacted or are expected to impact your life.

Economic damages refer to losses that affect you financially and often include your lost wages, the loss of future earning potential (salary increases and bonuses you would have earned), and your medical expenses.

We also look to recover non-economic damages, or those that have affected your lifestyle. These might include your pain and suffering, the loss of enjoyment of life, the loss of companionship and love, the effects of a disfiguring injury, the loss of household services, and emotional distress, among other things.

The goal is to make you whole again after your injury so your recovery is as painless as possible, despite the suffering you’ve already endured.

Get Ready to Battle the Insurance Company

Many personal injury claimants are surprised when they spend most of their energy negotiating with an insurer rather than directly with the person who hurt them. Many personal injury claims—particularly those involving motor vehicle accidents—will involve insurers.

Unfortunately, too many insurers continue to fail their policyholders and claimants alike when they prioritize the financial gain of the company over the needs of the person who has been injured.

Insurance adjusters are becoming well-known for their dishonest tactics, such as distorting statements given to them by injury victims to dodge their responsibility to pay up. Your attorney will be at the ready to defend your name and ensure that the insurance company doesn’t take advantage of you in your time of need.
