After seeking the appropriate medical attention and speaking with an attorney, the official filing process can begin. The amount you may be entitled to will depend on many factors, such as the type of accident, the extent of your injury, and whether or not the other person has insurance or liability coverage.
Though each process is different, there are some typical procedures that everyone can expect from their personal injury lawyer, including:
- File a claim regarding the property damage or physical injury
- Determine the amount of compensation you are entitled to based on the degree of damage and injury
- File the claim against the insurance company that represents the liable party
- File a lawsuit on your behalf if the insurance company fails to offer a reasonable settlement
