Report and document your accident
While you may have taken on this step alone, please remember that we want to speak to you as soon as possible about your claim, ideally immediately after the accident.
We encourage you to gather as much evidence as possible about the incident, including photos, videos, or written records from witnesses at the site. Evidence should contain specific details including the location, persons involved, proof of damage of vehicles (if applicable), and proof of any serious injuries.
For motor vehicle accidents, be sure to take photos and videos of the exact location or intersection, and all the cars involved, including their license plates.
For slip and fall injuries, capture the exact location of your accident and any evidence of its causes. This includes signs that warn of a slippery surface, or the lack signage, as well as anything else that highlights an unsafe environment.
As soon as possible, you must report your accident to insurance providers, waiting no longer than seven days. It’s important to keep all details of your accident confidential. Your lawyer and insurance provider should be the only ones with access to your case details. You must inform your lawyer about any existing court proceedings related to your accident, too.
The best time to seek legal counsel is immediately after the accident. This ensures that we’re building your case in the proper way to hold your insurance company accountable.Remember, your insurance company’s job isn’t to take care of you, it’s to reduce their payouts in the interest of their shareholders and owners. TPI Lawyers’ sole job is to take care of you and ensure you receive the best settlement.

Document your health
Documenting your health consistently is critical to your case. When your legal team pressures the insurance company, their best evidence is a thorough description of your health, the care you require, and your life before the accident.
The differences after your accident in terms of health, lifestyle, and ability to work matters a great deal. Your accident changed how you live, and documentation from medical professionals provides the evidence required to get you the best settlement.
As your legal team, we’ll walk you through: documenting your post-accident health; outlining the care you need now and in the future; contrasting your current state to life before the accident; and ensuring we have the evidence required for a strong case.
Pressure your insurance company to do the right thing
Your lawyer will be in constant communication with the insurance company to educate them on your case. At TPI, we’re always available to discuss your case. If you have any questions about your health, access to care, or work. We listen, and we work hard to take care of you.
Ultimately, we are building a case towards the settlement you deserve. You have the final say in this, and we want you included in the process.
What is the process for taking legal action?
In the unfortunate event that we cannot agree to a settlement with the insurance company, we are prepared to take legal action.
We firmly believe in our work, and that it is the most likely path to reaching your settlement as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, not all insurance companies share our interest in settling cases in a timely and fair manner. It’s our job to push them to do the right thing. By taking legal action, these may be the steps involved.
