3 Insurance Claims You Can Make after an Auto Accident

A report released early in 2017 showed that nationwide motor vehicle deaths in the United States increased by 6% in 2016. Of these accidents, 536 happened in Washington State, including Kent. And although this statistic shows a decrease in incidents compared to the previous year’s 567 fatalities, it’s still a staggering number to fathom. This is the exact reason every driver should exercise utmost road responsibility.

Should you find yourself in a motor vehicle accident, keep in mind that it’s in your best interest to seek out the help of a car crash attorney from Kent-based law firms like Feldman & Lee PS. These professionals can help you succeed in applying for these financial claims from your insurance provider.

Medical expenses​

Medical costs covered by insurance providers depend on a lot of factors, such as the value of your purchased plan. Typical insurance policies, however, offer reimbursements for your own injuries as the driver, your passengers’ injuries, and, if you happen to be the cause of the accident, other driver’s injuries.

Car repair​

You’ll be qualified to apply for car repair reimbursement if your purchased car insurance belongs to any of these types: collision, comprehensive, and rental car.

Lost wages​

If you got involved in an auto accident and had to skip work for days or weeks or even months, you could be entitled to lost wages compensation from your insurance provider. This amount should ideally match the same amount of salary you have lost as a result of said accident.

In cases of car crashes, the insurance provider of the driver at fault will have to shoulder all reimbursement claims, even the ones rendered by the other involved driver/s. This is where the whole situation gets a little tricky. But this should not be a cause for concern; you have personal injury lawyers to take care of these complexities.
