Car Accident Compensation: Personal Injury Protocol

Looking up car accident injury compensation is typically not a task you want to find yourself performing. It usually means that you or a loved one have been injured in a car accident. If that's your current situation, then you need to know some important facts and details about compensation, what you should do next, and how to take action.

First, as a general guideline, the car accident compensation which you receive will depend on three main or overarching elements: What You Lost: There are many forms of monetary compensation and damages, broken down into two key groups: economic and non-economic compensatory damages. Together, they include current and future medical bills, lost wages, emotional pain and suffering, lost earning capacity, and more.

Another type of non-economic damages will be the loss of consortium, which is always a sensitive and tricky issue. How much you have and will lose across these various categories sets your baseline car accident injury compensation.

Extent and Severity of Injuries: What actual types of injuries did you suffer, and what kind of impact have they had on you physically, emotionally, financially, and so forth? A broken finger and a broken leg could result in equal medical bills, but drastically different impacts elsewhere.

Their Ability to Pay: If they don't have insurance or assets, or only have an insurance policy set to a minimum amount, then you won't be able to receive more compensation than that. Therefore, their ability to pay is a major determining factor in what you actually end up receiving and how much your claim will be worth.

What to Do To Receive Car Accident Injury Compensation

The absolute first thing you need to do is get in touch with an experienced and qualified car accident attorney or legal team, so that they can take up your case and begin guiding you through the process. You should never speak with insurance claims inspectors or agents, as even simple or benign questions could come back to haunt you down the line in terms of the level of compensation you receive. Stay quiet, and seek out legal assistance first. If you're still on the scene of an accident, be sure to document as much about the process as possible.

Call the police and have them create a report. Write down details about how the accident happened, and see if any witnesses are available. Of course, always be sure to get their insurance information, and never give them any of your personal contact information. There's no need or purpose to be talking to that individual directly.
