What to Do to Win Your Personal Injury Case
At Lawyers BW, we have been making sure that injured Philadelphians get fair settlements since 1995. Our motto, “The client matters!” is what drives us to get the maximum compensation you deserve. And while we are always confident that we can get it, there are few things after the accident to build an airtight, indisputable case.
This is not always possible. After an injury, if you are not completely incapacitated, you are almost definitely in a state of shock. However, if you have the presence of mind to take photos of the scene from several different angles and distances, do so. By photographing from multiple angles and distances, it becomes easier to communicate the unsafe nature of the area.
Report the Accident.
It is far too common for people to shrug off or downplay an accident only for the adrenaline to wear off the next morning and that’s when they realize they are in serious pain and could use an insurance claim for treatment. Wherever you are at the time of the accident, make sure the authorities are alerted. This could even mean reporting it to a manager if you’re in a retail store at the time of the accident. If there is no report of the incident, the insurance company will approach your claim with scrutiny, making it more difficult to get what you deserve.
Get Immediate Medical Attention.
If you are in an accident and you feel injured right away, do not put off seeking medical attention. There are two reasons why seeking medical attention right away can benefit you later. First, if any serious damage has been done, you want to get it worked on as quickly as possible. Second, insurance companies are always very suspicious of people who put off seeing a doctor and will use it against you. The longer you wait to seek out medical attention, the more likely it is they will state your injuries are not as serious as you claim. This is especially important if you are in an accident that is unwitnessed or unreported because it’s a way to document exactly what has happened, adding credibility to your claim.
Don’t Give Statements.
A claims adjuster or a defendant’s risk management representative will reach out to you in hopes of getting your side of the story either in writing or through a recording. Typically, they say they are required to do an investigation or that they can help you if you hand over the details. However, you are not required to give a statement. In fact, it is risky revealing any information because it can be used against you later. Every interaction with the insurance company should be through your lawyer.
The last thing you need to do to make sure you get the maximum compensation for your injury is to have the right legal representation. When you choose Lawyers BW, you are choosing a law firm with experience, determination and accessibility.
