by | Oct 28, 2021 | Auto Accidents, Personal Injury

Have you suffered whiplash during a car accident? Learn how to make a claim for whiplash injuries here.

Whiplash can cause pain that lasts for weeks, months, or years, which can make earning a living and finding enjoyment in life difficult. Treatment is essential, but it can be expensive. If you don’t want to add financial stress to an already stressful situation, you need to know how to file a successful claim to cover the cost of your injuries.

Find out what you need to know below so you can recover physically and financially.

How to Make a Claim for Whiplash Injuries

  1. Seek medical attention.
  2. Get treatment for your injuries.
  3. File an insurance claim.
  4. Gather evidence.
  5. Talk to an attorney.

1. Seek medical attention.

Whiplash symptoms can take hours or even days to appear, so it is critical that you seek medical attention after a car accident, even if you are not experiencing any pain. Injuries that do not receive treatment quickly are more likely to develop complications and take more time to heal completely.

Schedule a visit with your doctor to determine whether you need treatment.

2. Get treatment for your injuries.

Once your physician determines the extent of your whiplash injuries, you can then start on the road to recovery. Be sure to follow your doctor’s orders as closely as possible. If physical therapy is necessary, go to every session and follow all of the at-home care guidance your physical therapist gives you.

By following your treatment plan, you can demonstrate the extent of your injuries and avoid risking the insurance settlement you need to pay for your care.

3. File an insurance claim.

You will also need to file an insurance claim promptly. Your personal injury protection coverage will pay for your costs, but it may not cover all of it. Depending on your coverage, you may need to pursue the other driver’s insurance as well.

4. Gather evidence.

Gathering evidence is one of the most important parts of the injury claim process. Make sure you have your medical records—before and after the accident—so you can prove how severe your injuries are. You should also compile all the expenses you incur because of your injuries.

5. Talk to an attorney.

Even if you put together a strong case, it is still possible that the insurance company will deny or underpay your claim. When that is the case, you will need the help of an experienced attorney to file a lawsuit and recover the damages you are owed.
