Car Accident Claim

What are the Elements of a Successful Car Accident Claim?

October 10, 2019

An experienced attorney and documentation of the effects of your injury are two factors that could prove helpful in resolving your car accident claim. When the Karl Truman Law Office is representing you, we make sure you know what you need to do in order to help your case, but you leave the heavy lifting to us. To learn more, please call us in Louisville at 502-222-2222.

1. Hire an Experienced Attorney

Having an attorney on your side can be invaluable to your claim. Without the assistance of a lawyer, you may feel like the insurance company isn’t taking you seriously. They often need to know an experienced lawyer is representing you before giving your claim the consideration it deserves. Other benefits of hiring a lawyer include that we:

  • Communicate with the insurance company
  • Pursue the maximum compensation you deserve
  • Make sure your best interests are represented
  • Let you know exactly what you need to do to pursue compensation

None of that is to say that hiring an attorney guarantees recovery of monetary compensation. Those guarantees cannot be made. What you should look for is an attorney who is personally driven to see your case through to the end. The lawyers at the Karl Truman Law Office do not rest until they have obtained the best possible outcomes for our clients. Please take a moment to read our clients’ reviews of our law firm.

2. Collect All the Documents and Information You Can, to Help Your Case

The severity of the injury and the effect it has had on your life needs to be well documented. It’s important to be able to show just how devastating the injury has been – financially, physically, emotionally and otherwise.

We may ask you to help your claim by providing the following:

  • Police report for the crash
  • Medical records
  • Records of missed work days
  • Accident and injury journal

Ask for records, receipts or documentation for any and all medical care you receive. This would include:

  • Emergency room bills
  • Hospital admission bills
  • Bills for x-rays, imaging, scans, etc.
  • Surgical bills, if applicable
  • Bills for treatment provided by your primary care physician
  • Prescription medication costs
  • Bills for getting physical therapy or chiropractic care

For any of these types of documentation, let our attorneys know if you are having trouble getting copies. Our attorneys may be able to secure the documents for you.

3. Stay in Touch With Us As We Resolve Your Claim

At the Karl Truman Law Office, we are personally committed to open, clear and honest communication with our clients. We treat you with the same level of service and attention that we would provide our own friends and family members. We care about the results of your case.

We want you to be informed of your case each step of the way. We believe cases have a better shot at success when both client and attorney are on the same page. The law firm provides you with contact information once you become our client so that you can call us with any questions or concerns.
