After contacting your insurance company and the police it is very important to also contact your lawyer as it can be the most crucial, that a proper legal advice is taken which will ensure that you will receive the compensation you are entitled to.
Most of the times, Insurance companies may propose an offer for settlement to you, provided that the traffic accident occurred due to the other driver’s negligence, which must not be accepted without consulting your lawyer. Usually these offers do not cover compensation for personal injuries or if they do they will never be to the amount you are entitled. Insurance is obliged to provide compensation not only for all the expenses you will have as a consequence of the car accident but also compensation for personal injuries.
Even if you do not feel any pain we strongly recommend that you always visit the Governmental Hospital as an injury may seem insignificant now but may deteriorate later on.
It is very important to always keep detailed records and receipts of all your visits to doctors, treatment, prescriptions from pharmacy, police reports, medical reports, car damages etc, so as to be able to ensure maximum compensation. Insurance will not accept to pay any amounts that you do not have an original receipt so as to prove that it was actually paid. Also these receipts will be used as evidences in case the case proceeds to Court.
