Since every situation is different, it is difficult to provide an exact number for what a personal injury claim is worth. When cases are successful, claimants may be awarded compensation for:
You can file an insurance claim with your provider right after the accident, but keep in mind that insurers impose time limits for reporting. Each one has its own guidelines, and a representative can provide this information. After filing, they might approve, delay, or deny your claim. Many times, insurance providers offer initial settlements and policyholders accept them without question.
However, this may not be wise because you could be entitled to a larger settlement. Once you accept it, your options for future compensation will be limited. That can be problematic if you have complications, received an incorrect medical diagnosis, or have other unpredictable expenses in the future, like never being able to return to work.
Every state has a statute of limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit. In Pennsylvania, claimants have two years from the date of the accident. It is important to adhere to this timeline because the case will likely be dismissed otherwise.
It is best to get a medical evaluation right after an injury, even if you do not think it is necessary. Some symptoms do not appear until time has passed and could worsen. Waiting too long might also affect your claim since insurance companies will question the severity of the injuries.
Whenever possible, gather evidence from the accident scene that can help your case. Besides getting the allegedly responsible party’s contact and insurance information, take photos that show what happened. This might include skid marks from a crash scene, an icy sidewalk, or a dog bite. Save all of your medical receipts.
You can contact your insurance provider after a motor vehicle accident and let them know what happened, but only provide basic, objective details. Elaborating on what happened might provide information that could be used against you.
