Legitimate personal injury claims can be blocked or severely limited if the person with the personal injury does not have authoritative medical documentation of the injury, obtained through a medical assessment completed immediately after the accident.
Waiting for even a day or two can be a big mistake because it can be construed to mean that you were not seriously injured and/or your injury happened after the accident. Remember, you are attempting to receive compensation from an insurance company that is not acting in your interest and is in fact going to do everything possible to deny your claim.
In addition to documenting your injuries, which can include physical, mental and emotional pain, you must demonstrate that you:
You may also be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, out-of-pocket expenses including medical costs or lost wages, the cost of any future care and/or other expenses.
