Determining the Value of Your Personal Injury Car Accident Settlement
Bill Allen | September 20, 2019 | Car Accidents
While every case is unique, many people often wonder how much money they would receive for their personal injury settlement. If you or a loved one has been involved in a car accident or has suffered personal injury due to the negligence of others, you may be entitled to compensation beyond what your insurance adjuster is offering. An experienced personal injury attorney can accurately determine the value of your case and assist you throughout the process.

Having a highly experienced and knowledgeable personal injury attorney on your side will help your case immensely and ensure that you are properly compensated for your injuries, property, and suffering. The attorneys at Allen Law Firm have extensive experience assisting cases just like yours. Our attorneys can look into your accident and develop a cohesive plan for fighting for your rights. We are experienced in these types of cases and can work to collect evidence that could help your case. This includes verbal testimony from eyewitnesses as well as expert witnesses such as medical experts, physical evidence including damage to cars involved, paper evidence from your accident including the official police reports and your medical records, and GPS data from vehicles involved in the crash. We just had a case settle that involved overturning the insurance company’s denial of liability because our firm secured the black box that contained data that supported the client’s version of the accident. That kind of investigation can make all the difference in your case.
One of the most important parts of the personal injury settlement process involves documentation. Having an experienced personal injury attorney on your side will help this process go more smoothly. After you or a loved one have been injured in an accident, your attorney will be sure to keep all relevant medical information, paperwork, and documents such as medical records, police reports, as well as photos of the incident, property, and people damaged. If there are any witnesses, they will collect their names and numbers in addition to their accounts of the incident. Your attorney will collect or document other important information such as missing or damaged personal items, how you feel physically, and the suffering you have gone through.
When dealing with a car accident, complete cooperation with the police is required. While it is important to respectfully deal with the police throughout your car accident process, it is even more imperative to allow your attorney to know about any recorded statements. If you are uncomfortable answering any questions, refuse to do so until your dedicated personal injury attorney is there to assist you. Following questioning, your attorney will request any and all documents and reports related to your case.
If you have suffered a personal injury, or have been in a car accident, you may struggle to receive the compensation your insurance policy promises. Insurance companies can be very self-serving; they wrongfully deny claims every day. Allen Law Firm will relieve you of the burden of dealing with the insurance companies thanks to our expertise in interpreting the policies, property evaluations, medical records, and correspondence that are necessary to properly resolve your case.
Every personal injury or car accident case is different. By following these steps, your experienced personal injury attorney will be able to determine the value of a settlement and fight for you to receive what you deserve.
