When Should I Submit My Accident Claim and Will I Need to File a Lawsuit
This is a complicated question and depends on many factors, including the amount of insurance coverage available and the extent of your injuries. If your injuries are significant and the at-fault driver has minimal insurance, you can usually submit a claim right away. However, if there is sufficient insurance coverage, it is important to determine the full extent of your injuries before settling your case.
You do not want to settle your case too soon after an accident, especially if you are still receiving medical care. People often make the mistake of settling too soon because they want or need money now. It is critical to remember that once you settle your case, it is over and you cannot go back later to ask for more money. For example, if you settle your case 30 days after an accident and then find out months later that you actually need surgery, you will not be able to recover for that.
