Filing An Injury Claim

A motor vehicle accident can place pressure and stress on an individual through dealing with adjusters, trying to be fairly compensated for damages and recovering from the accident itself. It can affect your recovery. But here are some helpful tips and information that can help you understand the process and alleviate some of the pressure that comes from an accident.

Here are some helpful tips:

  • File your claim with your insurance company as soon as you are physically able to ensure you describe any and all details which can help your case. Remember that waiting to file a claim can jeopardize your case and affect the timeline of the events.
    • Document everything. While it is normal to just exchange insurance information and get a police report, it’s important to know that you should be documenting as much of the incident and healing process in order to help your claim reach it’s full potential.

Your main concern should be your recovery because your well-being is important to us.
