    The process of making a car accident insurance claim


    When someone gets injured, one of the things that they wonder about is the process of making a car accident insurance claim.  The one thing that you should remember is that there are some steps that you should take when you are going to make a claim.  Below are the steps and some other advice that you should remember if you are going to make a claim.

    Go to the doctor is the first step in the process of making a car accident insurance claim

    If you’ve been in a car accident, one of the first things that you should do is to go to the doctor. Even if you don’t think you were injured, going to the doctor is a good idea. Sometimes the injuries that you have from a car accident don’t show up right away and if you go to the doctor you have it documented right away.  Going to the doctor right after a car accident will help it look more legitimate than if you wait.

    Document everything is the second step in the process of making a car accident insurance claim

    The second thing that you need to do when you’re making a car accident claim is to document everything. Make sure that you are writing down what you feel, what you are unable to do because of your injuries, and how your life has been affected. Document the medications you have to take and how your injuries are affecting your day to day life. This is going to help you with making your claim because it will show that you were experiencing the symptoms and for how long.

    Get a solicitor is the third step in the process of making a car accident insurance claim

    The third thing that you should do when you have been in an accident is to get a solicitor. This is going to show the people who caused the accident that you are serious and that you have a good case, since most solicitors won’t take a case that they think will win. Make sure that the solicitor knows everything and that you are not holding everything back. This is going to help them with your case.

    If you want some help with getting a solicitor, give us a call at Accident Advice Helpline free on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone.
