Once a claim is submitted to your insurance company, you may have concerns as to whether or note it will be handled properly. It’s important to know that the Insurance company will try to pay the minimum amount for your claim in order to maximize their yields.
Insurance companies will often pressure claimants to settle their claim quickly, and for an amount that may be less than fair, and less than what is needed to pay expensive medical bills. They may call numerous times urging you to take the claim settlement, but it is important that you do not settle the claim quickly because some accident related injuries can take time to be properly diagnosed. Learn the tips to survive an insurance dispute after a car accident below.
Here are some important things to remember that may help you survive an insurance dispute after an accident:
- Report on your own behalf by documenting the scene, even though the insurance company will do their own investigation. Use your cell phone to take photographs and video of the scene, and keep notes about what happened and factors that could be important. Any photos or videos taken at the scene of the accident could be helpful for documenting any information which you may have missed while still recovering from the shock of the accident. They can also be used as evidence later on, should you end up in court.
- Remember that information must be exchanged with the individuals involved in the accident. Some information is required by law to be exchanged, but some, while not required, could prove very helpful to proving the legitimacy of your claim. This includes names, drivers license numbers, contact information for those involved, insurance policy information, license plate numbers and other similar things. It also makes sense to get the contact information of anyone who may have witnessed the accident, as their testimony could be helpful further into the process.
- Make sure you take care of yourself as quickly as possible and go get medical attention. It is important to consult a doctor after an accident to check for injuries that are not easily seen by the eye. People are often in a state of shock after an accident happens, and that shock can sometimes mask the pain from damage you may have physically sustained. Also, muscle and tissue injuries can cause severe pain, and can take a long time to heal, but their symptoms may not be apparent at first. Brain and spine injuries can be similar, and have a long term impact on your quality of life, but also take time to manifest. A proper medical checkup after an accident can help diagnose issues so that they can be taken care of as quickly as possible.
- Contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible. The right attorney will take care of the larger portion of the work involved in pursuing your accident claim, so that you can focus on what really matters, getting better.

I don’t know where I would be without the Law Offices of Robert Paysinger. It was a very emotional experience, and I feel as if I owe Mr. Paysinger my life! The other lawyers would promise everything, but it was only here that I felt his integrity and willingness to live up to his word. He and the paralegals were so incredibly helpful throughout the strenuous process of my case. Going through a lawsuit is an emotional roller coaster, but whenever I was confused they would sit and explain everything in terms that I could understand. They provided an emotional support and treated me like family. It’s never about the money there, but about you, if you are upset they will do everything to help you, and work extremely hard for you. They are extremely honest and straight forward. I would recommend Mr. Paysinger to everyone, because they truly and genuinely care about you.

Thanks, Robert, for all the help with my accidents (both of them). You always promptly returned my calls and were extremely helpful whenever I had questions.
