If you have been injured in a car accident, trucking accident, motorcycle accident, or otherwise injured by someone else’s negligence, you deserve fair compensation.
So, what is your claim worth? First, it’s critical that, if you need medical treatment, get it immediately. Make sure your medical bills are submitted to your health insurance if you have it. Do not let an insurance adjuster force you into an early settlement just to pay your medical bills.
Your legal claims may include compensation for: medical bills, permanent injury, loss of use of a body part, scar and disfigurement, lost wages, pain and suffering, as well as special damages.
There is an old saying that your legal claim is “worth 3 times your medical bills.” This is simply NOT true. On many occasions, your legal claim may be worth more than three times your medical bills. In other cases, a claim may be worth less than three times medical bills.
Whenever you have a significant injury, retaining a personal injury lawyer will almost always net you more money. There are a variety of ways we try to increase your recovery, including negotiating with providers and your own health insurance. An experienced personal injury lawyer will know how to evaluate your case. Sometimes, litigation is required to force insurance companies to accept responsibility and pay you fair compensation.
It is important to choose a law firm with trial experience. Insurance companies know which law firms always settle their cases, and they will pay less to those firms.
