Overview of the Injury Claim Process

Overview of the Injury Claim Process

After an accident, you should receive emergency medical care and start on your treatment plan for your injuries. If someone else caused your injuries, you have the right to seek compensation for your medical bills and other losses, but how do you go about doing this? The following is a brief overview of the injury claim process. Every claim is different, so to discuss your specific situation, please contact a personal injury lawyer in East Georgia directly.

Finding an Attorney

While you can try to handle your claim on your own, it is always highly recommended to allow an experienced injury attorney to handle this process for you. You can focus on your injuries while your attorney:

●     Determines the parties who should be liable for your accident

●     Calculate your past and future losses

●     Gather evidence to support your claim

Insurance Claims

Your lawyer will likely proceed by filing claims and supporting documentation to the proper insurance companies that cover the liable parties. The insurance process generally involves negotiating with adjusters for the full settlement you deserve. It is common for injured claimants to receive better offers faster if they have the right legal representation.

Personal Injury Lawsuits

If the insurer does not offer enough to cover your losses after negotiations, your lawyer can file a personal injury lawsuit in civil court. The litigation process involves evidence gathering, settlement negotiations, and a possible trial. Most cases are able to reach a settlement, so they do not have to go to court.
