What Is The Value Of My Personal Injury Claim
Not all personal injury claims are the same, even if the type of accident and damages are similar. One of the most important aspects of a personal injury claim is accurately and effectively determining the fair and full dollar amount of your claim. This should only be done by an experienced personal injury attorney. It will not be done by the liable parties insurance carrier. They may approach you after the accident and offer you a quick and easy lump sum settlement which only benefits them and not you.
Several factors need to be thoroughly analyzed in order to properly establish what your claim is worth. These factors are: current lost wages, future lost wages, vehicle repair costs, current and future medical, therapy and rehabilitation costs as well as pain and suffering. Also, the full extent of your injuries may not present themselves until after many weeks, and in some cases months, following the accident. One of the most important things you should do after the accident is get appropriate medical care. Failure to do so, even if you feel ok, can impact your ability to receive benefits later on as your case progresses. As your attorney I assure that I will do everything necessary to establish the full dollar value of your claim and do everything in my power to get those benefits for you and your family.
