How can you get fair compensation for damages after an injury caused by another party? It seems clear that damages should be paid, but getting it done can be difficult. Initially, an injured person is contacted by the insurance company of the negligent party. An insurance adjuster can ask you to provide medical bills, records and other data, or could try to interview you, possibly even while still in the hospital. It is extremely important to your future ability to get fair compensation that you do not provide any of this information without first getting a personal injury lawyer.
An insurance company will traditionally offer a very low settlement. The hope is that you will accept it. Do you know what your injury claim is actually worth? The value of your injury claim is carefully evaluated to come up with the number, the actual dollar amount, that you are due, based on all of the damages in the case. This will include economic damages, such as medical and hospital bills, the costs of rehabilitation, medical equipment, prescriptions, transportation, loss of income from work, predicted future financial damages such as future necessary medical or nursing care, lost potential income, lost money that would have been invested in a retirement fund, and so on. The non-economic damages are related to the damages to you, as a person, and to your life, such as pain and suffering.
Every case is unique with regard to the amount of compensation that should be pursued. One rule holds true – get a professional to help you get the job done, as the likelihood of getting fair and full compensation could be greatly increased. One should always have a professional take on a difficult task, and personal injury claims are no exception.
