Crash Compensation Claim


Many people don’t know it, but there are things that you might do that can negatively impact your car crash compensation claim before you even file it. Below are some of the tips to remember when you plan to file a car crash compensation claim.

Don’t give insurance companies recorded statements when filing a car crash compensation claim

A lot of insurance companies are going to try and get you to make a statement regarding your car accident. This is something you shouldn’t do. They are going to use your own words to work against you down the line. Adjusters from insurance companies have been trained to ask the kinds of questions that are going to benefit them instead of you.

Never settle before you consult a solicitor for a car crash compensation claim

A lot of insurance companies are going to offer you a paltry sum for your inconvenience. You shouldn’t take it. In order to get the money, you’ll have to sign a release and this release is going to stop you from getting money for the injuries that you got. A lot of people who are injured seriously don’t know the extent of their injuries until the last days or even weeks after the accident. Consult with a solicitor and a doctor before you think about settling the claim. This will ensure that you know everything about your injuries

Keep going to the doctor for your car crash compensation claim

While your claim is going on for the car accident, it’s important to keep going to your doctor. Always keep your appointments for treatments and go regularly. Going a long time without treatment, missing your doctor appointments, not having any recommended procedures, and not taking your medication can reduce your claim. The defendant will not have to pay your damages if those damages have been caused or even made worse by your failure to follow your doctor’s recommendations.

Avoid posts about the accident when filing a car crash compensation claim

Never post anything about the car accident on Twitter or your Facebook. In addition don’t post any photos of your car or anything until you’ve talked with a solicitor. The defendant’s insurance company is going to use anything they can to discredit you or to have your claim dismissed.

Finding a solicitor is also very important when filing a car crash compensation claim. If you need some help with this, give Accident Advice Helpline a call.
