Documenting Damages is Crucial to your Personal Injury Claim

By Car Accident Help on January 23, 2013

Oklahoma car accident victim lawyers know that it is all too common for insurance companies to offer inadequate settlements that do not fully cover the damages and losses suffered by a crash victim. If you have been hurt in an Oklahoma car accident, it is crucial that you carefully document your losses and that you contact a skilled attorney who can help you pursue fair compensation.

Every loss that is directly related to an accident should be included in a personal injury claim. In order to get monetary support for your losses, you will need to have documentation of every expense. Make sure you save receipts and invoices from your mechanic if you had your car repaired, as well as all medical bills. You should also request a copy of your medical records. If your doctor has informed you that you will need continued medical treatment, such as rehabilitation services or surgery, you need to keep a log of those expenses as well. You should also keep track of the number of days you missed work as you healed from your accident-related injuries.

Financial losses are not the only damages that can be included in an Oklahoma personal injury claim. It is also possible to pursue compensation for physical pain and mental anguish. You can document what you are going through by keeping a daily journal. Write down the activities you are not able to perform because of your injury. Keep track of your daily struggles and how your life has changed since the incident. A skilled lawyer will know how to calculate a monetary value for these types of losses.

It is important to remember that it is in the best interest of an insurance adjuster to deny your claim or to offer you a settlement that does not fully cover your losses. An experienced attorney will be able to analyze all facets of your case and ensure that you receive maximum compensation for your injuries, damages, and losses.
