We often get asked this question . A competent attorney will not give you an answer until your condition resolves or until you are permanent and stationary.
There are many factors that come into play when making this determination. One key factor is Liability. Who is a fault. This may require hiring experts to help us with this determination. Such experts may include accident reconstruction experts, biomechanical engineers, human factor experts and others. We also employ an investigator when necessary.
Determining Liability will be a key to setting up your damage claim. An experienced personal injury attorney will be able to effectively evaluate all of the liability evidence in your case.
The second major factor in establishing the value of your claim is evaluating your damages. Several elements of your damage claim include:
– Pain and suffering
– Emotional distress
– Medical bills
– Loss of earnings
– Loss of earning potential
– How your injury has affected your enjoyment of life
The most important thing is for you to get the best medical care available. Once you have completed your medical treatment, we will be finally ready to evaluate the value of your case.
It is very important to ascertain the insurance available in your case. We will evaluate all relevant policies including automobile policies as well as commercial policies and homeowners policies. Sometimes, we can get this information voluntarily and sometimes we need to file a law suit to ascertain this information.
We will evaluate the type of insurance as well as the policy limits. It is also very important that, before you give any statement to any insurance adjuster, you need to have a qualified attorney assist you in preparing for the statement.
