Maximizing the value of your Maryland car or truck accident claim can be complicated but it is important. There are five simple things you can do to help yourself.
1). Get immediate medical care. Delay in treatment is the insurance company's ally.
2). Get medical documentation that you are unable to work due to the accident. If it runs out get it updated.
3). Keep track of your medical bills and who is paying them. They are one of the most significant elements of an insurance company's claim evaluation.
4). Get copies of your medical treatment records and read them. The insurance company will and if there is anything in the records that disadvantages you they will know it.
5). If something is wrong in your medical records tell the healthcare provider asap. Doctors make mistakes but unless you correct them everyone will assume your records are correct.
Also, hire a lawyer, they will make your life less stressful and increase the amount of your settlement.
