How Much Can I Expect to Receive From a Personal Injury Claim?
Bill Allen | August 23, 2017 | News
Injuries can occur to anyone at any time. When they do, necessary medical treatment, loss of income, pain, and unexpected suffering can occur as a consequence. What can someone expect to recover in a settlement if they choose to hire an attorney?
While there is no specific formula, the steps and process can certainly be explained to reduce the fear and the unknown. A good personal injury attorney will work to negotiate a settlement amount on your behalf with the insurance companies. The best approach is to call the Allen Law Firm to discuss the details of the injuries and potential case. You can learn more about the process itself, and what they have been able to successfully recover for others with similar injuries and situations.
How is ‘pain and suffering’ calculated in someone’s damages?
While an attorney can sometimes give you an idea of settlement potential based on your liens, outstanding medical expenses and your loss of income, determining the amount of money that can be recovered for someone’s ‘pain and suffering’ can be a lot more difficult. Many answers to these questions depend on the amount of insurance available to pursue a claim, and, if the injured party has met the threshold of a ‘permanent injury’, it also depends on the extent that they have compensable damages. Adjusters may try and use formulas, but the bottom line is that pain and suffering is different for everyone. A good firm can effectively convey the impact that the accident has had on someone, both temporarily and permanently, through a a well-written demand package.
