When you are involved in a car accident, the chaos and trauma can be a lot to deal with. Your insurance company is supposed to help you come back from the accident financially, physically, and even emotionally. You’ve been diligently paying your premiums for years for this exact purpose, but will they be paying out enough for your car accident compensation?
The Flickinger Sutterfield & Boulton are the best at what they do. We specialize in helping people who have been harmed or injured by the actions or mistakes of others. Our goal is to get you all of the compensation and justice that you’re due so that you can adequately heal and move on with your life successfully. We’ve learned a thing or two about insurance payouts, and we’re sharing it with you today.
Getting the Most Compensation for Your Car Accident
The first thing you need to know about insurance compensation in the event of an injury is that regardless of the details, there will be a snap judgment that categorizes your accident. This initial designation of funds is called a “reserve” and is predetermined by your history, zip code, and the very brief first description of your accident and injuries. This is a small amount of information to determine payout, so it’s important that you understand that reserve compensation can be altered and should be continually monitored.
It is critical that you give your insurance adjuster the most information possible when you file your claim. Your insurance adjuster will be working on a report of your accident and will need to include the level of damage to your vehicle, injuries, medical treatment, loss of wages, and other important factors in order to determine the right payout for your accident compensation. Take photos, scan documents, and get written reports from police officers, witnesses, and medical professionals. Documentation can make the difference of thousands of dollars when it comes to an accident case.
The initial report filed by your insurance adjuster will usually take about 15 days after the accident. A second report may be filed 30-60 days after the accident to include ongoing compensation, such as medical treatment, physical therapy, and new discoveries. Continue to monitor your injuries and financial strain, and pass all information along to your insurance adjuster. This can help your insurance company increase the payout to accurately reflect your needs in the aftermath of an accident.
If you’re feeling intimidated or like your insurance company isn’t playing fair, it may be time to hire an injury lawyer to represent your interests and maximize your insurance payout. Flickinger Sutterfield & Boulton know exactly how to communicate with insurance companies to file the best possible claim and get you the maximum compensation for your injuries, pain, suffering, and loss. You don’t deserve the bare minimum – you deserve compensation that will allow you to return to everyday life.
