How Do I File a Personal Injury Claim?
People often wrongly think they can handle their personal injury case on their own. However, most of them don’t know the process they have to go through and the compensation they deserve. Insurance companies will try to find any reason to deny your claim or offer you a smaller settlement than you deserve to make your claim go away. Insurance adjusters will try to take advantage of your lack of knowledge, especially when they find out you don’t have legal representation. That’s why hiring an attorney to handle your case is your best option to ensure a positive outcome.
Your Chesterfield personal injury lawyer will walk you through the entire process of your insurance claim, so you understand what your rights are. We will obtain a copy of the at-fault party’s insurance policy so we can put them on notice. Then, we will open an investigation of your accident to gather all of the evidence we’ll need to prove your claim. We’ll collect police/incident reports, video surveillance of the incident, photos of your injuries, pictures of the accident scene, and witness statements.
While we’re obtaining all of the documentation we need, you should seek initial treatment for your injuries. If you undergo an examination from a medical professional immediately after your accident, that can help us build a strong case for you. Your medical records will show the injuries you had and the doctors you went to for treatment. After your initial medical assessment, it’s necessary to follow your physician’s orders and see them as often as they suggest. If they refer you for imaging or specialty treatment, you can follow their instructions. The insurance company might deny your claim if there’s a gap in your appointments or you skip them altogether.
When your doctor releases you from their case, we will send a demand letter to the insurance adjuster, telling them the amount of compensation we believe you deserve. The adjuster will request we send them your medical records, incident reports, and any other documentation we have found to prove your claim.
If they accept the demand we submit, they will review the evidence and present an offer. The amount of your settlement will depend on the severity of your injuries and the liability limits listed on the at-fault party’s insurance policy. If we’re unable to reach an agreement that is acceptable to you, we will file a lawsuit against the insurance company, and possibly against the negligent individual or entity.
What’s the Maximum Settlement I Can Receive?
The amount of money you’re entitled to will depend on the limits of liability in the negligent party’s insurance policy. Liability insurance on a home, car, or business includes bodily injury limits. This coverage can compensate an injured person for all the damages an injured person incurred due to the accident. In a personal injury claim, damages are intended to make a person “whole” after an accident. They are the expenses you have after trying to heal your injuries and return to your regular routine. If someone caused your injuries, you might be entitled to the following damages:
- Medical Bills – Any treatment that is deemed as medically necessary to treat your injuries, such as ambulance services, ER visits, physical therapy, permanent disability, home health care, prescription medicine, and medical devices.
- Lost Wages – If your injuries prevent you from being able to work, now or in the future, you can seek compensation for the pay you couldn’t earn.
- Pain and Suffering – Any physical suffering you had to endure because of the extent of your injuries. This also includes emotional distress that resulted from your accident, such as anxiety, PTSD, and depression.
- Loss of Consortium – An immediate family member can seek compensation if their relationship with you has been affected as a direct result of your accident and injuries.
- Wrongful Death – If a person dies in an accident caused by someone else, their loved ones can file a claim and receive compensation for damages like funeral expenses.
It would help if you didn’t have to pay for your expenses when your injuries were caused because of someone else’s recklessness. They should be held responsible, and your attorney from OnderLaw, LLC will fight hard to seek justice for you. We know how important it is to resolve your case quickly so you can return to your normal schedule and the activities you enjoy. We will work efficiently, so your case doesn’t drag on for longer than it should.
