After a crash, there are several things you should do to protect your right to file a claim. However, you should also take steps that help you maximize the value of your compensation. The evidence you collect and provide to insurance adjusters and your legal team can work wonders for your case, especially if you have a skilled lawyer to present the evidence on your behalf.
Here are some of the things you should have to maximize the compensation you may recover.
Your Medical Receipts
For any medical expenses you incur as a result of your injury, you can include as part of your compensation up to a specific limit. Medical expenses can include initial treatment, ongoing care, prescription medication, specialized medical equipment, and more.
Mental Trauma Diagnosis
If you receive a diagnosis showing that your accident and injuries have resulted in mental trauma, you may be able to seek compensation for your pain and suffering. In these matters, your attorney choice can play a significant role in how much you recover. Most cases involving non-economic damages depend on how well a lawyer can present your case.
Property Damage Costs
If you’re involved in a car accident and suffered injuries, you also undoubtedly suffer property damage. Whether you need to pay for repairs to your vehicle or replace it completely, auto insurance claims cover a specific amount under policy limits for property damages.
Some injuries are so severe, they can keep you out of work for an extended period of time. You may be unable to earn wages. As such, you may be able to include lost wages as part of your compensation for money you may not be able to earn while injured.
