How do car accident injury claims work?
When a car accident in San Diego occurs, injury can often follow, whether it is at the scene of the accident, just shortly after the accident, or even days or weeks after the accident depending on the type of injury sustained. For example, an injury like whiplash may not surface until days later after the accident has occurred, whereas broken bones or lacerations are usually evident at the scene of the accident. Either way, once a person realizes they are injured, they usually seek medical treatment to assess their condition. Injury can often lead to medical bills, missed work, loss of quality of life, and other unwanted, life-changing events. At this point, the injured person usually files a claim with an insurance agency –whether it is their own or the other driver’s agency – to receive compensation for their injuries.
Once the injury occurs, the injured person usually has two options:
- Work directly with the insurance company to receive compensation for injuries. In our experience, the insurance companies may try to rush you to accept a low amount for your injuries.
