Recovering auto accident losses

Commercial & Auto CollisionsAutomobile collisions are unexpected life events and can cause an immediate crisis or further an existing one. Following a crash, it is important to build a claim or case that will secure a complete recovery. Potential losses are countless, but can include:

  • Lost wages
  • Medical bills

  • Worsened existing conditions

  • Depression

  • Disability

Providing detailed information about your losses may feel frustrating and sometimes embarrassing, but it is important to document and present this information to support a loss claim. Every case is different. One case involving the total loss of an automobile may result in very little loss. At the same time, the total loss of an automobile may result in serious injuries or death in other cases. The opposing driver's insurer will be equipped to undermine, ignore or discredit your losses. It is important to consult with an experienced professional to determine the scope and nature of your losses to respond to the opposing driver's insurer.

Accident losses can add up and each component of damage should be considered, explored and supported by documentation and other evidence. The nature of evidence needed to support the type of loss sustained can vary. For example, supporting a wage loss claim typically requires the production of past wage and tax records. By additional example, a claim of emotional distress can be supported by mental heath records and physician records.


Pre and post injury photographs are powerful tools

Injuries can be illustrated through photographs.  An even more powerful tool are both pre and post injury photographs.  Sometimes it is impossible to photograph injuries at the scene of a collision, especially if the incident involves a serious injury requiring immediate medical attention or death.
