Construction Site Car Crash Damages
The amount of compensation a person can receive in these cases will depend on the facts of the situation. The compensation you recover should account for all your damages, which may include your pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost wages, diminished earning capacity, disability, and other losses.
Three Things to Not Do After a Car Accident on a Construction Site
Here are some of the things that can hurt the value of your claim for financial damages:
- Talking to people at the scene of the crash. Be aware that people might twist your words or take them out of context to try to get out of paying you what you deserve. For example, if you express compassion to another person injured in the collision, the negligent party might accuse you of admitting fault.
- Accepting a lowball offer. Insurance claims adjusters often dangle a settlement check in front of an injured person without explaining that the check is the only one the person will receive. You will have to pay all of your medical bills out of the amount. Many people realize, too late, that they should have gotten much more money for their losses.
- Posting on social media. Do not post anything—photos or comments—about the crash or your injuries on social media. Insurance companies routinely scan through social media sites to find things they can use to devalue your claim.
