Steps in Filing a Personal Injury Claim

Filing a personal injury claim can be an intricate process, but understanding the basic steps can help simplify it. Here are the basic steps you should take: 

  1. Seek medical attention. Your health is the priority. Seek immediate medical care and follow all prescribed treatments. 

  1. Document the incident. Collect evidence such as the at-fault party's details and insurance company information, police reports, photos, witness statements, injury reports, medical records and any relevant documents related to the incident. 

  1. Consult an attorney. Speak with a personal injury attorney to evaluate your case and discuss your legal options. 

  1. File a claim. Inform the at-fault party's insurance company that you have been injured as a result of their insured's negligence.

  2. Investigate the claim. Your attorney will conduct a thorough investigation to gather additional evidence and build a strong case. 

  1. Negotiate a settlement. The majority of all personal injury cases are settled out of court through negotiations. Your attorney will submit a demand letter to the negligent party or their insurance company outlining your injuries and damages and advocate on your behalf to secure a fair settlement. 

  1. Litigate if necessary. If a fair settlement cannot be reached, your attorney may file a lawsuit and represent you in court. 

Personal injury claims aren't easy to deal with alone. An experienced personal injury attorney can make a significant difference, ensuring that all legal procedures are followed and maximizing the benefits available.
