Determining the value of a
personal injury claim can take time. Insurance companies who are quick to offer settlements
are often doing so in the hopes the claimant will agree to accept a payout
far below what he or she is eligible to receive. When we assess the value
of a claim, we do so with our clients' best interests in mind. There
is far more to consider than just immediate medical expenses and vehicle
repairs. The circumstances surrounding your accident, the extent of your
injuries, current and future medical expenses, loss of income, loss of
property, pain and suffering, emotional or financial distress caused to
you or those who depend on your care, loss of enjoyment and many other
factors should all be considered when determining the true value of a claim.
In cases where the liable party's actions are particularly reckless,
the victim may be awarded punitive damages as a way to deter such egregious
behavior in the future. If the other party attempts to claim you are partially
or entirely responsible for your own injuries, we may need to review the
effect comparative negligence will have on your claim. If you want to
