Filing a Personal Injury Claim

If your motor vehicle was damaged in the car accident or you were injured, you may be able to recover compensation from the at-fault party. This is most commonly achieved by filing a personal injury claim against the at-fault party. You may be able to recover damages for things such as:

  • Work on your vehicle at a mechanic’s shop
  • Money that you need to pay for a rental car or other forms of transportation while your vehicle is in the shop
  • Money to pay for a new vehicle if your car is totaled
  • Medical bills related to injuries that resulted from the car accident
  • Treatment such as physical therapy, medication, special equipment, etc.
  • Loss of income if you are out of work
  • Loss of future income if you can’t go back to work because of the extent of your injury
  • General pain and suffering related to the accident and its impact on your life

If you would like to file a personal injury claim, there are a few things that will be helpful. Before filing your claim, gather evidence to support your case. This evidence may include photographs of the accident and your injuries, a police accident report, a medical report from a doctor or other healthcare professional, scientific proof of who caused the accident and how, documentation with your insurance company, etc. The more information you have, the more you can protect your interest in the lawsuit.
