How you and your personal injury attorney can maximize compensation

When it comes to boasts of maximizing compensation, motor vehicle accident victims and their family members need more than braggadocio. They require sound advice, effective strategies, and tangible success at trial to secure every dollar possible for medical expenses and other losses.

The effects of serious injuries and the expenses associated with medical treatment can last for years. Quick "solutions" do little to address the true value of long-term physical and psychological damage. The stakes are high for those who need and deserve maximum compensation.

While the responsible party's insurance company is the "go-to" source for compensation in car and truck accident claims, additional entities may be responsible. Motor vehicle crashes are not always solely the result of negligent drivers. Poorly constructed or maintained roads, damaged or missing signage, or defectively designed and manufactured vehicles can play a role in catastrophic collisions.

Identifying those parties is a vital step in maximizing compensation. Proactive steps by accident victims can also help secure every dollar they deserve:

  • Collecting contact information from witnesses
  • Securing a police report
  • Seeking immediate medical help
  • Avoiding gaps in treatment
  • Not speaking directly to insurance adjusters
  • Documenting all property damage
  • Maintaining a journal
  • Listing all expenses from travel costs to lost wages
  • Adhering to statutes of limitations
  • Retaining an experienced and knowledgeable personal injury trial attorney

Just because some personal injury attorneys settle does not mean you have to. The decision to settle or go to trial in an effort to maximize your compensation is an important one.
