How Do I File a Personal Injury Claim for a Car Accident? 

You never saw it coming—a vehicle collision. You’re a safe driver, and you may have never been injured before in your life. You pay for your insurance, but you don’t think you were responsible for causing the crash. Should you call your own insurance company to file a claim, or should you make the other driver pay for your damages?

If you’ve never been in a car accident before, several questions are probably duking it out to be the first to get answered. One of those questions could be, “How do I file a personal injury claim for a car accident?”

The Personal Injury Claim Process for a Car Accident

After your accident, one of the first moves you should make is documenting the car accident scene. If you can, take photos or video of the crash scene, or have someone do it for you. You want to have as much documentation of the crash scene as possible so you can piece together what happened.

You should then obtain evidence that can help you prove what happened. If the police arrived on the scene, they will help you with this step.

After evidence has been collected, you should get yourself to the hospital or doctor’s office. You need to get treated for your injuries. Be sure to document your injuries and losses so you can include them in your auto injury claim.

Next, you will put your paperwork together. This includes evidence that proves fault and evidence of your damages.

Then it’s time to negotiate a settlement from the at-fault person’s insurance company. They should offer you a settlement check as long as you’ve proved your case.
