A common question asked by clients who are injured in a car crash is, “what is my case worth?” The honest answer, at least at the outset, is “I don’t know yet.” The reason for this is simple. The value of any claim varies based upon the type of injury, the amount of medical care required, the duration of the symptoms, the amount of lost wages and several others factors which can take months or even years to develop. The value of your claim may also be limited by the amount of insurance that the other driver, or you, carried at the time of the auto accident, or by any potential liability issues involved.
The potential value of a claim will change over time, and the focus should be on getting the medical care that you need to recover. By doing that, you will not only improve your health, you will also have documentation about your symptoms and care which will be essential to proving your case. For that reason, the best thing that one can do for their case is to get the treatment that the doctor prescribes, and to follow your doctor’s instructions about rest and restrictions as best as you can.
A lawyer with knowledge of auto injury claims will be able to guide you through the process of dealing with the insurance companies, health insurance companies, collection agencies, and gathering documents from you medical providers. If necessary, they will also be ready and willing to file suit and take your case to trial. Only those with knowledge of how to properly value a claim, and to hold insurance companies accountable, will be able to achieve the maximum value for you on your claim.
