Financial Expenditures – Keep a Diary.
Car repair estimates and bills.
Of course you want to keep track of these. If your insurance company gives you an estimate that you think is too low, get a second opinion. Go to a trusted, certified mechanic for another estimate. Keep all paperwork from all estimates and repairs.
Out of pocket payments
Keep track of all out-of-pocket payments for eveything you need to spend money on as a result of your accident. First aid supplies, heating pads, crutches or medicine, taxis or buses, child-care, pre-paid events cancelled – everything you need to pay for as a result of the accident.
