HOW MUCH IS MY CASE REALLY WORTH?
Early settlement offers made by the insurance company to an injured person only account for the immediate and apparent damages, such as vehicle repairs, or medical bills from the first hospital or urgent care visit. What’s not considered are the extent of your injuries, their permanency, and the long-term effects of the injuries on your life. That’s why it is critically important not to accept an early settlement offer as chances are, the insurance company is only offering a small fraction of the actual value of your case.
When building a case against the insurance company, your personal injury lawyer must consider all the economic, and non-economic damages caused by the crash. Naturally, the more serious your diagnosis is, the more likely your case will be worth more. We will present substantial and compelling evidence of the full measure of your damages, including your past and future medical expenses, your past and future pain and suffering, your mental anguish, your lost wages (documented income loss due to your injuries), your loss of future earning capacity (diminished capacity to work in the future), and any other economic loss sustained because of your injuries.
When evaluating cases, insurance companies also take several other factors into consideration, including your medical history, the severity of the impact/crash, and whether you bear any fault for causing the crash. Each case is unique and presents its own set of challenges. That is why it is important to have a experienced and skilled legal counsel on your behalf. At Spinner Law Firm, we’ve been helping accident victims recover full compensation for their injuries. Contact us today to find out what your case is really worth.
