Important Tips For Settling Accident Claims

If you were seriously injured in an accident caused by the negligence or recklessness of another party, you may be entitled to compensation. Common accident injury claims include:

  • Auto accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents

With the help of an experienced NYC personal injury attorney, you can get full compensation for your:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Loss of wages
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering

Bellow are some important tips that can help make the process of settling personal injury claims easier and less stressful.

Understand the Circumstances Before Making a ClaimAccident Claims

It is important to understand that every accident claim is fact specific. This means the same factors that applied to your friend’s car accident claim, will not apply to yours. You need to understand the circumstances of your accident and the facts that gave rise to your claim against the other party.

Seek Immediate Medical Attention

In order to successfully settle an accident claim, you need to prove that you were injured. In order to prove the full extent of your injuries, you need to provide documentation or objective proof of your injuries to show not only the nature and extent of those injuries, but to show that the injuries were caused or contributed to by the negligence of the other party.

Collect Evidence

One of the most important steps to be undertaken at the scene of the accident, if possible, is to collect evidence. Photographs of the accident scene should be taken to document what happened. Photographs should also be taken of your injuries. The contact information of the party(ies) that caused the accident should also be obtained. Also, it is imperative to get the contact information for any individuals who actually witnessed the accident.

Do Not Rush the Process

Settling your personal injury claim for maximum compensation takes time. The insurance company may take its time to investigate before it decides what it wants to offer in a settlement. It is important that you don’t rush the process either. Knowledge is power. You need to take the time necessary to treat your injuries so the injuries can be assessed in light of best resolving the claim. Once you settle your claim, you cannot go back and make a claim for more money.

Hire an Accident Attorney

Perhaps the most important step is to hire an experienced New York accident attorney to protect your legal rights and help you get the full compensation that you deserve.

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
