Millions of people are injured in the United States every year. In fact, 31 million people require medical treatment for various injuries sustained. 2 million people end up in the hospital for accident-related injuries.
Not every personal injury is someone else’s responsibility. However, when it is, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Of course, you have likely seen numerous advertising telling you that personal injury lawsuits result in compensation for your damages. That is only part of the story. There is a lot that needs to happen between your injury and the check that pays you for your damages.
Don’t forget that an “injury” is a necessary part of a personal injury claim. The insurance company is offering you money because you have suffered some sort of damage in an accident. However, before the insurance company even makes you a settlement offer, they need to know for sure that you have been injured. They do not like to write checks under any circumstances, so you can be assured that they are going to ask hard questions about the damages that you are claiming before they start talking specific numbers.
The insurance company is not simply going to take someone’s word about the extent of their injuries. They will want to see hard facts and then have discussions based on that. In your case, this means that you need to submit information about your condition, treatment, and prognosis.
The question then becomes how to best prove this when you submit your claim. The key is to have your claim documented from the beginning. The insurance company is going to ask questions because they may be looking for ways to get out of paying. They will look to try to poke holes wherever they can to find inconsistencies.
This is why claim documentation is so critical. Beyond submitting proof of what happened, the key is to leave no doubt that you were injured and convey the extent of your injuries. In this regard, you should turn over medical records directly related to the accident while not allowing adjustors access to your entire medical history. The medical records to release include:

Your personal injury attorney could present your case and help you respond to any questions from the insurance company. They will tell you whose questions you need to answer and when you do not need to say anything.
