The Right Compensation for Your Accident

Tips on How to Claim the Right Compensation for Your Accident

So, you’ve been involved in a car accident in one of the major districts in Arizona, and you’re in the dark about what to do next?

It’s no surprise that receiving the right compensation for your accident is one of the major focal points as your life has been completely turned upside down by an accident that probably wasn’t even your fault. You’ve probably had to pay for unexpected medical bills and additional transport costs- and that’s before thinking about repairing your own vehicle if you can even repair it.

How to Claim the Right Compensation for Your Accident?

Claim the right compensation for your accident, the discussion between the two

You may have asked neighbors, friends, or family members who have been through a similar accident, just to find out what the next step is for a personal injury. Perhaps you’ve called the insurance adjuster or your personal insurance agent to get the desired answers, but no one has been clear on just how to claim the right compensation for your accident.

It’s really important to file your claim as soon as possible after it happens so you can help speed things along with your personal accident case as insurers can be known to drag their feet! Once you’ve made them aware of the accident, you’ll be asked to give an account of the accident as well as have a professional assess the cost of damages on your vehicle. If you’ve had to see a doctor or have any ongoing medical bills, you’ll need to keep the insurance company updated so they can include those outgoing costs in your settlement too.

Who will pay you after an accident?

Signing document for the right compensation claim

When it comes to receiving compensation after an accident, it is essential to claim the right compensation for your accident. We’ve written a lot about on how to claim the right compensation for your accident in previous blogs, but the main factor to remember is the insurance company representing the at-fault driver will be ultimately responsible for the payout you receive after an accident. The delay between filing a case and receiving the money will differ from insurance companies but it can take up to 6 weeks from agreeing on an amount to getting the cash in your account.

Once you’ve filed your case, had a professional assess costs, updated the insurer on any medical outgoings, and agreed on the final amount offered, the final settlement amount will be transferred to your bank account by the insurance company you originally filed with, where you can finally claim the right compensation for your accident and begin to rebuild your life.

I was in an accident that resulted in getting whiplash and a concussion. I contacted Phoenix Accident and Injury Law Firm that day. Everyone was helpful (Rhea, Karissa, and Jeff) from the very beginning to the very end. They sent me to a physical therapy location that was pretty far away but the doctor and physical therapist were very kind so I did make the trek. They handled all aspects of my case in a timely manner and answered all my questions. They got the max amount possible, and from that, paid the medical bills and took their fair cut. I would not hesitate to recommend them to family or friends.

I would give ten stars if I could. This law firm is about as professional and friendly as it gets!! They stayed in constant contact with me and answered every question I had. I got a settlement that was higher than I expected and will definitely use this law firm again. I highly recommend hiring them to handle your legal issues!!

What can I say about the Thompson Law Firm? They are AMAZING!! It’s never fun when you need an accident lawyer because you are pretty much in a bad place. Shane and the staff have been wonderful, kept me informed at every step of this process. I would recommend Thompson Law Firm to anyone, in fact, I have referred several friends already!! Thank you Thompson Law Firm for everything you did for me!!!

These guys were absolutely amazing. They were very clear with me about what I needed to do on my end and I saw fast results. I just recommended them to a friend a week ago and he also dealt with my mother's case. I wouldn't see anyone else.
