The Important Details of a Personal Injury Case

Posted on August 12, 2015 by Dan Christensen

When you are the victim of a personal injury and placing a claim with an insurance company, you should contact a lawyer to look out for your best interests. Most insurance companies are looking to only pay you the minimum that they can get away with, which could keep you from getting a fair and just settlement, but there are ways to strengthen your chances of obtaining a fair result.

Take Lots of Pictures

Insurers will try to claim that the accident wasn’t as severe as you are making it out to be, but having lots of pictures can prove your claim. If you are unable to take them, have a spouse, relative, or friend snap as many shots of the scene and the damage as they can. These will come in handy later.

Get Full and Proper Medical Treatment

Many people will try to save money by going to a cheaper facility or by seeing a physical therapist or chiropractor instead, but insurance companies often try to claim that this means you are faking an injury. The best solution is to see a doctor and undergo proper testing.

Be Open with Your Doctor

Insurance companies will also request your medical records, so it is important that you are completely open with your doctor, so he or she can properly record your injuries and give you the best care they can provide.

Insurance companies, though often friendly, are a business trying to meet the bottom line. This means that they will use tactics that could cost you fair compensation. Some companies will even draw out a case to put economic pressure on you to settle early, but consumer legal funders like Beacon Funding can keep you from being dragged down by such tactics.
