ou’ve been in a crash.
You’ve checked for injuries, called the authorities, exchanged information, looked around for witnesses, what now?

Number five
Contact Your Insurance Company ASAP. Cooperate with them and this might sound obvious, but tell them the truth about what happened and the extent of your injuries. Explain the facts clearly. Because if it’s revealed that you lied when making your claim, the least that might happen is that they might deny any or all of the coverage for the accident. Also, inform them of any police report that was filed.

Number 6
Keep Track of any Medical Treatment you receive, including doctors, physical therapists, chiropractors, or other medical professionals that have given you treatment. Request copies of all medical reports and bills as these help you prove your medical expenses later. While Medical expenses are relatively easy to document, your pain and suffering is something else. Keep a record or a diary of how your injuries are impacting your life. Don’t forget to Include any missed work, and the other routine day to day activities you can no longer perform. You also might include how your injuries have affected other members of your family.

Number 7
Take photographs of your car, and all the other vehicles involved in the collision, immediately after the accident. These can help the adjustor determine your monetary compensation. Also, take a picture of your car today, from all angles, before any accident. It’s a great “compare and contrast” to show the full damage that your vehicle sustained.

Number 8

Ask for your insurance company’s damage valuation. If you aren’t satisfied with how your insurance company has valued your vehicle, you still have options. Get two different quotes for repairs or replacement. Tell the insurance company that their number is inadequate. If they don’t budge, call Harold Ehrenberg about mediating or representing you in a legal action.

Also, Be Wary of Early Settlement Offers. Some injuries don’t show up right away. Back, neck or head injuries might take weeks before becoming extremely painful. You should have legal help before settling any claim. You need to know you’ll be compensated for all your injuries, so call us before signing any settlement documents.
Also, remember to not speak with anyone about the accident other than your lawyer, your insurance company, and the police.
