If your injuries were the result of someone else’s negligence, you deserve compensation under California law. However, determining the value of your Los Angeles personal injury claim is a complicated process. Various factors will determine what you’re owed.
Determining the Value of Your Injury Claim
The severity of your injury will heavily impact the amount of compensation you receive. For instance, spraining your wrist in a car accident will result in less compensation than injuring your spinal cord. While suffering from a sprained wrist is a painful experience, spinal cord injuries can result in a lifetime of pain and suffering.
Placing a value on your injury isn’t as straightforward as you may think. You may be able to add up the value of your medical bills, property damage, and lost wages, but how much compensation are you owed for your mental trauma? Contacting a personal injury attorney will help you better understand your injury claim.
Dealing with Insurance Companies
Insurance companies will do anything to prevent you from receiving compensation; they will attempt to absolve themselves of any responsibility to compensate you. By minimizing the blame of their client, they reduce the potential payout they owe you for your injuries.
Insurers will thoroughly examine any proof you have against their client during the case. Insurance companies will attempt to use anything, such as the statute of limitations surrounding your claim, against you. You can protect your compensation by teaming up with a qualified personal injury lawyer.
