Tips for a Successful Boating Accident Claim

 We want you to know that you are not helpless in this situation. Getting in an accident can make you feel like you have no control, but there are things you can do to strengthen your case.

First, we want you to seek immediate medical attention. If you delay seeking medical attention, then you’re likely going to do damage to your physical well-being. You need to prioritize your own health. We understand why it may have taken you a little while to get to a doctor, but the insurance company won’t understand it. They are going to be looking for excuses to devalue your claim. If you delayed seeking medical attention, they could claim that you lied about your injuries or that you lied about how you got hurt. Either way, you’re looking at a claim that is going to have a result that is not as fair and not as full as it should be.

Next, you need to avoid giving the insurance company a recorded statement. They will try to ask you to give them a statement to talk about your injuries. They may seem helpful, as if they want to help you get the case resolved quickly. Quickly is not the way you get a fair result, however, especially when you’re giving them a statement about the accident. If they get you to agree to a statement, anything you say will be used against you. We strongly encourage you not to talk to the insurance company without first talking to your Augusta boat accident lawyers.

Lastly, we want you to feel confident about making the decision to hire one of our Augusta boat accident lawyers. You deserve justice and we can help you get it. Some people think that hiring a lawyer is more trouble than it’s worth but that could not be further from the truth. We make everything easy for you legally. We also don’t ask you to pay us unless we win your case.

Please reach out to us as soon as possible so that you can get the help you so badly deserve.

How Damages Get Calculated

 If you’ve been involved in a boating accident, you are likely seriously hurt. Your life has probably changed a great deal, and not for the better. We want you to get a full result for your damages. The more you know about how the damages are calculated, the better. Here is how the damages you’re suffering from get calculated.

You have two different types of damages. You have your economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages are the things you can track with receipts like medical bills, missing wages from lost time at work, and rehab costs, etc. Anything that is a tangible loss due to your accident can be included in your economic damages.

Your non-economic damages would be the things like your mental and emotional pain and suffering. It’s anything that you can’t see or touch. You can’t see pain, but you do deserve compensation for it. If you haven’t been able to enjoy your life since the boating accident, you deserve compensation for that.

Our Augusta boat accident lawyers want to fight for your justice. We encourage you to reach out with any questions or concerns. We won’t be able to tell you an exact amount for your case in terms of compensation, and if a lawyer tells you they can get you a certain amount for your case, please walk away from that person. Once we know your maximum medical recovery, we will be able to tell you what you should expect in compensation. We want nothing more than for you to get the results you deserve. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to get your questions about damages answered by our skilled and dedicated lawyers.
