Recovering Damages from a Construction-Related Auto Accident
In the event that your vehicle sustains damage or you are injured in an accident resulting from road construction, it is helpful to know how to initiate the process of recovering compensation for the losses you have sustained. Following proper procedures allows for the possibility of settling things amicably without the need for legal measures to be taken.
• Tending to any physical injuries that you may have sustained is always the first priority. Seek proper medical assistance and ensure that any injuries are properly noted for your insurance records
• Filing a police report is just as crucial to recovering losses after construction-related accident as it is after a collision with another car
• Taking photographs of the damage to your vehicle can provide additional evidence to your insurance company
• Determining which city, county, or township is responsible for the road will tell your insurance who to negotiate with and how to pursue damages
• Filing a claim with the construction company will notify them of the circumstance and warn them of any liability that they may ultimately face
Unfortunately, the responsible parties will sometimes contest the case and try to deny you compensation.
