3 Tips for Filing a Personal Injury Claim in NYC, Bronx, New York

When you've been injured due to someone else's negligence, a personal injury claim can help you collect compensation for your damages. However, the process is typically much more complex than simply filing a claim with the insurance company, as the Bronx personal injury attorneys at Stephen B. Kaufman, P.C. can attest.

To ensure the best possible outcome for your case, they recommend:

  • Preserving Evidence: If you're able, take pictures of the scene of your accident as soon as possible. If you've been hurt in an auto accident, get photos of the vehicles and any damage caused, as well as any factors that may have contributed to the accident. Victims who have suffered due to unsafe conditions should have someone get photographic evidence as soon as possible if they're unable to do so themselves.
  • Personal injurySeeking Medical Attention: Even if you believe your injuries to be relatively minor, see a doctor as soon after your accident as possible. Some injuries only emerge later, especially if they relate to soft tissue. Having medical documentation of your injuries can make proving your case much simpler and give the insurer fewer reasons to deny your claim.
  • Hiring A Personal Injury Attorney: In almost every case, you will need legal representation to help you collect the full value of your damages. A skilled personal injury attorney will have the expertise to properly valuate your claim so you know how much to ask for, and they’ll negotiate directly with the insurer.
