Insurance claim form. The form is on an old wooden table with a mobile phone, coffee, glasses and a keyboard. There is copy space to the right. Accident and insurance concept
An insurance claim is a request for benefits or compensation for damages that result from a motor vehicle accident. The claim is typically made with the insurance company representing the driver who is at fault.  Both drivers will need to report the accident to their insurance companies, however, in accordance to the requirements of their individual policies. Many car insurance claims are made each day around the nation, and the process has become relatively standardized. That doesn’t mean the insurance company won’t push back if they believe they shouldn’t recognize their liability, but the process will be similar to most other accidents of the same type.

Like any personal injury lawsuit, you’ll first need to prove that another person or business entity is responsible for your injuries and was negligent. Where a case becomes more complicated for a self-employed person is in the calculation of lost wages. If you work for someone else, either as an hourly or salaried employee, it is rather straightforward to calculate how many hours or days of work you lost due to your injuries and provide a letter stating what regular compensation and bonuses, commissions, or other forms of compensation you missed out on. You can also include any sick, vacation, or bonus days you had to use during your hospitalization and recovery. If you are self-employed, the process becomes more complicated.

Dictionary definition of word negligence, selective focus.
Per se negligence laws are a useful tool in a lawsuit when evidence of negligence is harder to acquire. If you are trying to win a slip and fall settlement, for example, your attorney will likely approach the case in a manner that fits a standard negligence case. However, if you’ve been hit by a drunk driver or otherwise injured in a car accident by someone who violated traffic laws and was cited in the process, you may be able to use negligence per se laws to sue for damages due to the injuries you sustained.
