Q: What do I do if the insurance company claims I'm at fault for my injuries?
You should contact an Atlanta personal injury attorney immediately if the insurance company has made claims that you are at fault for the injuries you sustained. Pursuing an insurance claim sometimes can be a frustrating experience, especially when you are blamed for injuries that were caused by someone else’s careless or reckless actions.
Proving fault is the basis of any claim, so having adequate evidence is important. You can improve the chance of being successful with your insurance claim when you have the help of an Atlanta personal injury attorney.
The nature of your accident and the injuries you sustained will determine the types of evidence necessary for your case. For instance, if you were injured in a car accident, but the insurance company is trying to put the blame on you, having certain types of evidence handy can make a difference.
Evidence can help establish the other driver’s fault, including:
- a copy of the police report;
- statements from witnesses; and
Or, if you were injured while undergoing surgery, medical records could be used as evidence. Let’s say a surgeon left a surgical sponge inside of you; x-rays could be entered as evidence.
No matter what type of case you pursue, you will need to have ample evidence showing that someone else is negligent. An attorney can help gather this kind of information.
