Statement of medical expenses

Statement of Medical Expenses is an official document issued by hospitals. It shows a detailed treatment record of your illness or injury, medical fee points, and medical expenses. Insurance companies refer to it for paying your medical fee. GIROJ, which is responsible for researching cases of CALI, also refers to it for checking your medical status.

On-the-spot Investigation Report

The police make an “On-the-spot Investigation Report” showing detailed information about the traffic accident. It is for the criminal record of the traffic accident. Since police make it as a third party, it will be one of the strong evidence on what exactly happened in the accident scene. Both a victim and an at-fault driver use the report for supporting their argument when their negotiation doesn’t go well.

Percentage of Negligence

The amount of compensation depends on the percentage of negligence in a traffic accident. If you're 30% faulty in the accident, the amount of compensation you legally deserve 30% decreases. The percentage of negligence is one of the biggest disputes between a victim and an at-fault party.

Is the damage, to humans or property?

If police categorize the accident as a personal injury traffic accident, the at-fault driver could incur both administrative and criminal penalties. If the accident is categorized as a property damage traffic accident, the people involved in the crash could incur an only administrative penalty.
