No Fees Until We Win
Making an insurance claim after a personal injury can be a complicated process. Here are some things to keep in mind when making a claim:
First, you will need to gather all the necessary paperwork. This includes any medical records or bills, police reports, and eyewitness statements.
Next, you will need to contact your insurance company and let them know that you have been injured and would like to file a claim. Be sure to have all your documentation ready before making this call.
Once you have filed your claim, the insurance company will likely send an adjuster to investigate the accident and determine how much they are willing to pay for your damages. If you are not satisfied with their offer, you may want to consider hiring a personal injury lawyer to help you negotiate a better settlement.
Finally, remember that insurance claims can take time to resolve, so be patient and keep communication open with your insurance company throughout the process.
Steps to Take
Here are some steps to take before filing an insurance claim due to a personal injury:
- Get medical attention right away, even if you think your injuries are minor. This will document the extent of your injuries and will be important evidence if you need to file a claim.
- Gather as much evidence as possible at the accident scene, including photos or videos of the scene, witness contact information, and any other relevant documentation.
- Contact an experienced personal injury attorney to discuss your options and help you navigate the insurance claims process.
- File your insurance claim as soon as possible. Be sure to include all relevant documentation and evidence, and be prepared to negotiate with the insurance company to get a fair settlement.
If you’ve been injured in an accident, don’t try to handle the insurance claim on your own. Contact an experienced personal injury attorney to help you through the process and get the compensation you deserve.
After you file your insurance claim, this is the process that happens with the insurance company.
First, the insurance company will investigate your claim. This means that they will look at the facts of your accident and decide if you are eligible for benefits. If you are eligible, the insurance company will send you a check for the amount of your claim.
If you are not eligible for benefits, the insurance company will deny your claim. If this happens, you can appeal the decision or file a lawsuit against the insurance company.
The appeals process can be long and complicated, so it is important to have an experienced personal injury attorney on your side. A lawyer can help you navigate the appeals process.

Insurance Claims for Automotive Accidents - Explained
Here is a detailed explanation of how insurance claims work for auto accidents, including what to do after an accident and how to make a claim.
If you’ve been in an accident, you may be wondering how insurance claims work. If you have auto insurance, your policy will likely cover some of the damages caused by the accident. Here’s a look at what you need to know about making an insurance claim after an accident.
First, it’s important to understand that there are two types of insurance claims: first-party and third-party. First-party claims are made with your own insurance company, while third-party claims are made with the other driver’s insurance company.
If you’ve been in an accident, you’ll need to file a claim with your own insurance company first. Your insurance company will then investigate the accident and determine who is at fault. If your insurance company finds that you are not at fault, they will likely reimburse you for some of the damages caused by the accident.
However, if your insurance company finds that you are at fault, they may not cover all of the damages caused by the accident. In this case, you may need to file a third-party claim with the other driver’s insurance company.
When filing an insurance claim, it’s important to have all of the necessary documentation. This includes a copy of the police report, as well as any medical bills or other documentation related to the accident.
It’s also a good idea to take pictures of the damage caused by the accident. These can be helpful in supporting your claim.
Once you have all of the necessary documentation, you’ll need to contact your insurance company to begin the claims process. Your insurance company will likely have a specific claims process that you’ll need to follow.
In most cases, you’ll need to provide your insurance company with a detailed account of the accident, as well as any evidence that you have to support your claim. Once your insurance company has all of the necessary information, they will investigate the accident and make a determination on who is at fault.
If you’re found to be at fault, your insurance company may not cover all of the damages caused by the accident. In this case, you may need to file a third-party claim with the other driver’s insurance company.
However, if you’re not at fault, your insurance company will likely reimburse you for some of the damages caused by the accident. It’s important to keep in mind that each insurance company has different rules and regulations regarding claims, so it’s important to check with your own policy to see what is covered.
If you have any questions about how insurance claims work or what to do after an accident, it’s a good idea to speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer. A lawyer can help you understand your rights and options, and can assist you in filing a claim.
Here's how to gather evidence immediately following an automotive accident:
If you’re able, take pictures of the vehicles involved, as well as the license plates. Be sure to get shots of any damage to either car. If there are any skid marks on the road, take photos of those, too. It’s also important to get pictures of any traffic signs or signals in the area.
If there are injuries, get medical help right away. Even if you don’t think you’re hurt, it’s always best to be examined by a doctor. Once you’ve seen a doctor, get a copy of all your medical records related to the accident. These will be important when you file an insurance claim.
Get the contact information for any witnesses to the accident. Witnesses can provide valuable testimony if your case goes to court.
File a police report as soon as possible. The report will include important details about the accident, and will be useful when you file an insurance claim.
Keep track of all expenses related to the accident, including medical bills, car repairs, and lost wages from time missed at work. Again, this documentation will be important when you file your insurance claim.
If you have any questions or concerns about filing an insurance claim, contact a personal injury lawyer. A lawyer can help you understand your rights and options, and can represent you in court if necessary.
Personal injury insurance claims can be complex. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you navigate the process and get the compensation you deserve.
