How is the Value of my Claim Determined?

Many people trust insurance companies to determine the fair value of their claim when they are injured in an accident. Sadly, however, the truth is that insurance companies have only one primary objective, maximizing their profits. Your insurer is not interested in making certain you receive the maximum compensation to which you are entitled.

Do I need a personal injury lawyer after an accident? There is no easy method to determine the value of any Injury claim. A variety of factors have to be considered, including:

  • The circumstances of the accident.
  • The facts contained in the police report and in witness statements.
  • The extent of the injuries sustained.
  • The degree of medical treatment required.
  • The findings of objective testing.
  • The quality of the medical reports issued by the attending doctors.
  • The significance of any pre-existing conditions.
  • The relevance of previous accidents or injuries.
  • The existence of temporary or permanent restrictions.
  • The limits of applicable insurance coverage.
  • The extent of relevant property damage.
