A catastrophic personal injury accident can leave you with pain, suffering and serious life altering problems. If you or a loved one has suffered such injuries in an accident caused by the reckless actions of another party, you may be all too familiar with problems ranging from physical difficulties, emotional stresses and financial losses. You may not be able to return to work for a long time, if at all, making it almost impossible to make a living and pay the medical bills incurred from the accident.
Although it may be clear and obvious to you that the at fault party and/or their insurance carrier is responsible for your injuries and should compensate you for your losses, this is not always the case. Insurance carriers will always take all steps necessary to either deny cases or paying out the full compensation deserved. This makes it imperative that you hire an aggressive Stockton personal injury attorney to fight for you and help you maximize the compensation you deserve.
Maximizing Your Compensation
Although you may believe your injuries are obvious, and many are, insurance adjusters are trained to make every effort to find reasons to minimize your claim. As such, it is important to take every step possible to properly handle your claim. Below are some important steps you can take to maximize compensation in your personal injury case:
- Seek immediate medical attention after the accident.
- Do not miss doctor’s appointments, and if you do, reschedule the appointment as soon as possible.
- Follow the directions provided by your treating physicians
- Keep all evidence pertaining to your accident.
- Do not provide any recorded statements to any insurance companies, until and unless you have consulted with your personal injury attorney.
- Follow any instructions provided by your attorney.
An experienced Stockton accident attorney will also know the important steps necessary to ensure you get the full extent of the compensation that you deserve. As a team, you and your legal team can maximize the money damages that you are entitled to for the injuries you have suffered.
