The Process from Collision – Recovery – Collection

The Scene of the Car Accident
If you are involved in a car accident, then you should immediately contact emergency personnel and/or a local police department. A police officer will be dispatched to the scene to secure the location, observe the scene, and take statements from those involved in the accident and any witnesses.

The officer will ensure that all of the appropriate information is taken from the parties and recorded. In addition, the officer will prepare a detailed report that will be used by the insurance company in evaluating your claim.

Police involvement will increase the accuracy of the information processed by the insurance company. In addition, it will reduce the likelihood of faulty recollections being presented by someone at a later date as well as identifying material eyewitnesses.

Treatment
If you are injured and medical treatment is necessary, you should immediately start receiving care. Often times, someone may believe that they sustained only a mild injury that will go away with time. However, a mild injury may become worse and require ongoing medical treatment.

Accordingly, if you have pain immediately seek medical attention!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How will my medical bill be paid?

If you own an insured vehicle and you are injured while operating that vehicle, then whether or not you are at fault, your medical bills will be paid by your insurance carrier.

If you own an insured vehicle and sustain injuries while a passenger in a vehicle owned and/or operated by another, then your automobile coverage will be responsible to pay your medical bills.

Q: How long will it take to receive compensation for my claim?

It depends on how long you are receiving medical treatment for the injury and whether the insurance company agrees to accept responsibility for the accident and fairly evaluates your claim in a timely fashion.

In addition, where there is a dispute as to fault or the severity and extent of your injuries, the case may take longer to settle and may be necessary to institute a lawsuit to resolve the disputes issues.

Q: Can I recover money for days that I miss from work?

If you selected Wage Loss Coverage in your insurance plan, then you are entitled to receive the specified amount of compensation for any days that you miss from work as a result of the accident.

Q: What should I know about Insurance Coverage?

If you are insured motorist, you already selected the type of coverage that will determine how your perosnal injury claim will be processed. The major distinction between Insurance Coverage Plans is whether you selected the Full Tort or Limited Tort Option.

A Full Tort Option means that you can sue for non-economic claims, such as pain and suffering, regardless of the severity of bodily injury that you sustained, as a result of the accident.

A Limited Tort Option means that you must prove that you sustained a “serious bodily injury” in order to be eligible to recover for pain and suffering. What is considered a “serious bodily injury” can be a hotly contested issue but it generally means serious, protracted loss of any bodily member, permanent disfigurement or death.
