3 steps to take after getting medical care for crash injuries

When you were hit by a distracted driver, you were badly injured. You and your passenger ended up in the hospital, and you stayed there for a few days. Now, as you're getting out, you know that it's time to look into making an insurance claim.

You've never been involved in a crash before, so you're not sure where to start. Here are three steps to take next now that you're leaving the hospital.

1. Get in touch with your attorney

The first step is to reach out to your attorney. Your attorney will help by contacting the police for the report and speaking with the other party's insurance agent to discuss compensation.

2. Start collecting your receipts

The next thing to do is to gather up your receipts and bills, so you can give them to your attorney. Everything you spend in relation to your injuries needs to be accounted for. The other party should be held liable for all of those expenses.

3. Get an independent medical examination

Finally, even if you've already seen multiple doctors, the insurance company may ask that you see an independent medical provider to assess your injuries. The insurer will choose the provider they want you to see.

After all of this, your attorney will continue to work on seeking a fair settlement for you. In the case that they cannot come to an agreement that is fair, then your attorney may represent you in court and help you seek the compensation that you need and deserve to deal with your financial losses and damages.
