Investigating Your Claim
Winning an accident claim requires strong evidence that the other party was negligent and caused you harm. One of the reasons you should work with an attorney is that they are trained to collect, analyze, and present such proof. Some of the pieces of evidence they may gather for your claim include:
- Accident and police reports
- Accident reconstruction reports
- Witness statements
- Expert witness accounts
- Medical records
- Photo and video footage of the accident scene
Determining Your Losses
Once your attorney has enough evidence to argue your case, they will usually go about determining the exact value of your losses. This is more complex than it sounds as it involves evaluating your medical records, sorting through your past expenses, and working with experts to project your future losses.
From all the information they gather, your attorney can come up with an exact number of what you deserve for damages such as:
- Past and future medical bills
- Rehabilitation, physical therapy, or aftercare costs
- Lost income
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
Dealing with Insurance Companies
Insurance companies are notorious for employing tricks and strategies to get out of paying personal injury claims. They are, after all, businesses trying to protect their bottom line. With an attorney by your side, however, you have someone whose main interest is you. they will handle all negotiations and exchanges with the insurance company on your behalf.
Defending Your Rights
As mentioned, insurance companies will often go above and beyond to avoid paying out your claim or to reduce the total settlement amount. They may issue a claim denial based on commonly used defenses, such as:
- Claiming your pain was unrelated to your accident
- Claiming you had a pre-existing injury that made you vulnerable to further injury
- Claiming the accident was your fault
Your attorney will work hard at every stage to refute such claims that could undermine the validity of your claim. You can only expect the opposition to be more vicious if you are unrepresented.
