Is there anything I can do to convince the insurance company that my claim is valid?
A client will often inquire about whether there is anything they can do to convince the insurance company for the at-fault party that there claim is in fact valid.
The most important thing for you to do after you are involved in any type of accident that results in injuries is to focus on recovering from your injuries. Not only does this impact your health in a positive way, but this also lends to your credibility regarding your injuries. Insurance company personnel tend to believe those people who actively try to recover from their injuries. That is why you must cooperate with your doctor, physical therapist and other personnel who are trying to help you improve from your injury.
Secondly, insurance companies believe those people who can document their injuries through medical bills, credible and detailed medical reports and accurate lost wage information that is neither exaggerated nor subject to dispute and interpretation.
Thirdly, insurance companies usually settle cases easier with those clients who have been in active contact and cooperation with their attorney. That means that you are working with your attorney on a routine basis to keep them updated of your status with regard to your injury and you are providing your attorney with any and all documentation needed to move your case along.
In summary, it is important for you to proactively work on recovering from your injuries, maintain an accurate record of your expenses related to your injury and cooperate with your lawyer and his or her staff.
