Most victims of another’s negligence receive less compensation when they are entitled to more. However, there are ways to increase your compensation and avoid the pitfalls of adjusters. Do not worry. You’re not alone.
- Collect substantial evidence.
Keep in mind that the adjusters do not know all the details, nor were they present at the event. Presenting images and videos is critical, but you shouldn’t limit yourself to this. Medical records showing the severity of your injuries, along with the number of visits and results, add more credibility to your claim.
Likewise, write down the days on which you were absent from work because of the incident. It is possible to claim lost wages.
- Show the impact it had on your quality of life.
How debilitating is your physical and/or mental condition after the accident? You don’t notice it now, but imagine that your health worsens in a few months or years as a result of the situation. Maybe it’s about not being able to perform the same roles in your job in the future and having to change your work style. You can also present evidence of these long-term consequences, not just those you face in the present.
- Don’t minimize or assume anything.
Even the smallest detail can make a significant difference. Consult with a personal injury attorney to learn about the variety of out of the ordinary damages you can claim, such as medical expenses. With evidence of having received psychological treatment, you can receive compensation – damage to physical health is not the only eligible type.
Finally, submit your claim as soon as possible. It is essential that you do not wait too long to avoid losing the evidence and credibility of your claim.
The best possible result after following these tips is not guaranteed if you do it on your own. You need an expert in personal injury law who can guide you to avoid errors in the process that risk your compensation.
