After you are injured in an accident, you will need to file an insurance claim in order to get compensation to cover the damages and injuries involved. Using the insurance claim, your insurer will make an assessment of what you should receive as a payment. They will often have an assessor or other professional investigate the circumstances of an accident to see if the details correspond with a claim.
It is important that the insurance claim be as truthful and thorough as possible. Any inaccuracy may lead to the denial of an insurance claim.
After the accident, do your best to document the following:
- Damage to the vehicle
- The extent of your injuries
- The names and contact information of witnesses
- The scene of the accident
- Any notes on what led up to the collision
By writing down this information as soon as possible, you ensure presenting a more accurate and acceptable claim. When you have such strong proof, it will be harder for your or the other insurance company to find any errors or discrepancies.
Unfortunately, insurance companies are often looking at their bottom line before their obligation to policy holders. Your insurer may offer compensation that does not truly account for the devastating effects of an accident. Occasionally, they may try to outright deny that you sustained a serious injury or were the victim in the accident.
