Here are a few tips to help you get the maximum amount of compensation available to you after an accident.

Avoid discussing your injuries with the insurance adjuster

The insurance adjuster may try to get you to say that all of your injuries from the accident were diagnosed and treatment was determined. This can cost you. If you are later diagnosed with a brain injury as a result of an accident, you may not be compensated for the treatment.

Do not accept a final settlement

Accepting a final settlement offer means that you can no longer receive any other compensation for your injuries. Once your claim is closed, you cannot reopen the claim to get the money owed to you—not even if you are later diagnosed with another injury that resulted from the accident.

Hire an accident attorney to represent you

Hiring an experienced Virginia personal injury attorney to represent you to the insurance company helps ensure that you receive maximum compensation for your injuries. You can get the guidance you need throughout the resolution of your claim so that you can be confident that everything is handled in the best way possible.
