If you’ve suffered any personal injuries as a result of a car accident, you should estimate your wages and property loss before claiming any injury compensation.
To estimate your wage loss, you have to calculate the direct lost provoked by the injury and also the indirect future losses due to the reduction of working hours, restriction of duties or even job loss. To calculate the wages loss, the best thing to do is to consult a skilled accountant specialized in payroll, who will be able to help you determine the amount.
In order to determine the property damage, you must get estimates about the final repairing costs or the costs of car replacement with a similar vehicle. If you can recuperate your car, pay attention to include in your claim any property loss, such as electronic devices or other expensive features of your car.
To make it easier for you to remember all the details of the accident, request a copy of the police report of their actions and observations. If you encounter any problems in getting the report, contact an Injury Lawyer Orange County to assist you with the legal procedures. After getting the report, identify all the responsible parties and gather all their contact details, which will be useful to make your claim.
