If you ever find yourself involved in a car accident, there’s plenty you need to take care of afterwards. First and foremost, you need to exchange information with the other drivers involved, even if it’s a minor crash with little to no damage. This is important in the event that one of you needs to file a claim. Another important task you need to do is document every single medical expense incurred after a crash.
If you are injured in a Georgia car crash, even if it is a minor injury, you should record every penny spent. This includes money spent by your insurance plan too. Save every co-pay receipt, medication receipt and bill received from a hospital, your doctor, ambulance transport company or anything else stemming from the crash.
The best way to record all of your medical expenses after a crash is through the use of a spreadsheet. When you use a spreadsheet you can create different sheets for each one of your doctors, separating the expenses based on your preference.
You should log every document that you receive into the spreadsheet by date, doctor, amount and if any of it was covered by your insurance. It’s also important that you make copies of all the receipts, bills and statements you receive pertaining to your medical care after the car accident.
The importance of documenting your medical expenses following a Georgia car accident cannot be overlooked. Keeping your bills and receipts in one place makes it easier when asked to submit them for a legal claim against the other driver.
