How to File A Bodily Injury Claim

It is simple to file a bodily injury claim, otherwise called a personal injury claim, yet some websites are built around elaborate directions on how to file a bodily injury claim. Here is the big secret: tell the insurance company representative that you speak to – it doesn’t matter which company – that you were injured, hurt, sore, or even just had a headache. That’s it; just say “I was hurt”.


You do not need to make a written proclamation or hire an attorney to write a letter for you just to get the ball rolling. Filling out and signing forms can come later (in fact you won't even get those forms until you say "I was hurt"). You don’t have to wait for the right moment to make your announcement. In fact, it is good to not wait at all. You don’t even need to wait until you see your doctor before telling the insurance company that you are sore. If you decide later that you are fine and do not need to seek any medical attention at all, your untreated pain may still warrant an offer.

See how easy it is to file a bodily injury claim? Pick up the telephone and tell the insurance company.
