Reporting a Personal Injury

Reporting a Personal Injury

Rock Hill, SC Personal Injury Lawyer

A talented North Carolina and South Carolina personal injury attorney may be able do much to convince a jury that you are an honest and deserving claimant, but only if you follow the correct procedures after your accident.  Read on to understand the best practices for reporting your accident and subsequent injuries.

When should you report your injuries?

The sooner you declare your injuries after the accident, the better your personal injury case. If you postponed reporting your injuries for several days after the accident, insurance adjusters may attempt to convince the jury that you fabricated the injuries in order to receive a personal injury settlement. Although it does not necessarily mean that you are lying if you do not immediately report the injuries, the jury is more likely to believe you if you report your injuries directly after the accident.

In addition to this, the first responder to your accident should support your claims regarding your injuries. If the first responder and/or medical professional do not support your claims or even say that your supposed injuries are due to previous accidents, this may damage your case.

Can an adjuster assert that you are continually faking your injuries?

Any Charlotte personal injury attorney will tell you that a mere statement will not be enough to convince a claims adjuster of your injuries without evidentiary support (especially if you have a track record of prior personal injury claims). If there are any suspicions of repeated insurance claims, your case will be thoroughly investigated.
