When Should I Sue Somebody For An Accident?

If your insurance claim won’t compensate you for your total losses, you should seriously consider a lawsuit. pain and suffering, medical treatment, and other damages may not be fully covered or taken as seriously by your insurance provider as it should be. When this happens, you need a personal injury attorney.

How Much Is My Case Worth?

This depends on the severity of the accident and the purpose behind it. If you were hit and suffered minor whiplash that can be fixed by chiropractic care, your compensation may cover the treatment and time off work, plus a few thousand dollars on top. However, if you required surgery or suffered permanent damages or a disability, the payout is going to be exponentially greater.

The best way to get the most out of your case is to see a doctor immediately and talk with your attorney before signing anything with an insurance company. Talk to a specialist who understands the complexity of your injury so you’ll have an accurate timeline for your healing process and can be compensated correctly for it.

What About Pain And Suffering?

We’ll calculate the cost of your injury by seeing how it has affected your life. Will the injury affect your day to day life? Will you have pain in the future? What emotional anguish have you suffered and how long will that continue? Can you still perform your job at full capacity? All of these factors and more will determine the cost of pain and suffering.

Unlike us, the insurance company will put together a value based on numbers from similar cases. It comes from an algorithm the computer runs after telling it the factors involved in the accident.

The insurance company almost always offers a number lower than we do, which is why an expert personal injury attorney negotiating on your part is crucial for you to be paid what you deserve.
