There are a number of factors that go into determining the ultimate value of your claim. There’s not a formula that is applied that you can say in every instance. Oftentimes, when you’re dealing with an insurance company or an insurance adjuster on your own, they are going to give you extremely low offers. It’s not infrequent now, in this day and age, for insurance companies to offer you less than what your medical bills are.
In instances like that, really, the only option that you have is to hire someone who is a skilled and experienced trial attorney because in those instances, the insurance company and the insurance adjuster is really only giving you two options. You take this pittance that they’re going to give you, which won’t even pay your medical bills, or you have to file a lawsuit. If you want to be fully compensated, fully protected, you have to have an attorney who is a real trial lawyer, who will file the lawsuit, and take the case to trial if it needs to go to trial.
