If you are injured in a motor vehicle collision make sure that you do the following:
Go for medical treatment right away.
The insurance company may use it against you if you delay.
You should report all your injuries to the medical providers and follow up with treatment in a timely manner.
You do not want the insurance company to raise a defense that you failed to cooperate with your doctors or did not report each condition.
Submit your medical bills to your group health insurance or your medical payment coverage. This will make sure that you have timely payment of your bills. Typically, the other driver’s insurance company will not pay your bills until a settlement is reached.
Make sure that you do not give a recorded statement to the insurance company. They will use your statement against you in court or pre-trial proceedings.
Make sure that you follow all the timelines required by State in which you were injured. Failure to do so may result in you being denied any recovery.
