If another person’s negligence or an entity’s oversight was the cause of your accident, you may be entitled to compensation for the following:
Keep a record of all medical expenses related to your injury. Many injuries may include bruises, fractures, broken bones, trauma, and injury to soft tissue.
Loss of Wages
Inability to return to work (resulting in unpaid time off) after a car or bike accident is common, especially if injuries are severe.
Damages or Property Loss
Regardless of whether your vehicle/bike is dented or completely totaled, the expenses to repair damages or replace a vehicle add up.
Developing Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is common after encountering an automobile or bicycle accident, especially if you or a loved one is badly injured.
Loss of Enjoyment
Individuals may experience fear or dread of driving/cycling, anxiety from oncoming traffic, and not wanting to leave the house. These fears can eventually lead to complete loss of enjoyment.
Negotiation with Insurance Companies
Most people mistakenly believe that their insurance company is looking out for their best interests. However, insurance companies are in the business of making money, and they are trained to lower their payouts. Sometimes, a difficult negotiation or even a trial is necessary to obtain a fair result for an injured party.
Be prepared. Insurance companies may prolong a rightful claim in order to make you frustrated, encourage you to give up, and subsequently settle for less money than you actually deserve. They may even completely deny a valid claim. Thus, it is important to obtain the appropriate materials and evidence to prevent this from happening.
