IMPORTANT FACTORS THAT AFFECT A PERSONAL INJURY CLAIM

2

Each personal injury claim is unique with respect to its facts and the compensation awarded by the insurance carrier. To ensure that you get the full extent of compensation that you deserve, you need to consult an experienced San Fernando Valley personal injury attorney who handles cases similar to yours. 

There are two important factors that an insurance company will look at when evaluating your personal injury claim: the extent of your bodily injuries and your loss of income.

Bodily Injuries

In evaluating the value of your injuries, the insurance adjuster may look at the nature of the injuries you have suffered, the length and type of the treatment you have received for these injuries, and the permanency of the injuries. As such, it is imperative that you treat with the right doctor for the specific injuries you have suffered.

Your San Fernando Valley personal injury attorney will assist you in getting the prompt medical attention that you need so that you can get the just compensation that you deserve.

Loss of Income

The adjuster will need certain documents in order to properly evaluate your loss of income. In order to calculate the value of lost wages, the insurance adjuster will multiply the amount of hours you were unable to work by a certain rate of pay per hour. You will need to prove your hourly wages with proper documentation from your employer. Your San Fernando Valley personal injury attorney will request the necessary documents and submit them to the adjuster.

The Right Legal Help

The insurance company has only one goal, to settle your claim for as little as possible. In many cases, adjusters may automatically reduce the value of a claim if the victim is not represented by legal counsel.

To increase the chances of getting the full compensation that you deserve for the injuries that you have sustained, it is in your best interest to hire an experienced attorney to handle your claim.
