Personal Injury Claim ValuePersonal Injury Tips

The value of your personal injury claim will depend on both the total of your damages and the results of the investigation of your accident.

When addressing damages, it will be necessary for you to reach maximum medical improvement. This is the point at which you’ll have recovered back to your pre-accident level of health or gotten as close to it as you are able. Getting to this point in your recovery is necessary so that your lawyer can be confident they are making a fair request for compensation on your behalf. If they negotiate a settlement before they have this information and it turns out you are unable to make a full recovery, they’ll have settled for much less than you deserve.

The individual items considered when assessing your damages will include things like medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost income. There are numerous damages that can be sought, and our experienced personal injury lawyers can assist you in determining which ones apply to your claim. Even the loss of future income or future retirement earnings may be considered if it turns out you cannot return to the same earning potential you had before the accident.

Because your damages will be specific to your injuries and the specific facts of the case, damages vary form case to case.

In addition to your damages, your personal injury lawyer will need to conduct a thorough accident investigation. This is done to clearly identify all at-fault parties who owe you compensation. In addition, your attorneys’ investigation will serve to gather critical testimony and evidence to connect the actions of the at-fault parties to your resulting injuries. This connection must be made for your claim to succeed.

The skilled personal injury lawyers at Paukert & Troppmann will take all these elements into consideration when assessing the value of your claim. Reach out today to schedule a free legal consultation to meet with an attorney in person and get your claim questions answered.

Choosing a Personal Injury Attorney

We always recommend meeting attorneys in a free consultation before deciding which one is right for you. Don’t sign any documents until you’ve had the chance to sit down with a lawyer in person and get a feel for your comfort level with them.

Too many firms turn clients over to case managers and paralegals, getting people to sign up before they’ve even talked to an attorney. We believe a firm should take the time to allow you to ask your questions of a lawyer in person before you sign anything. You owe it to yourself to find out if the firm and a particular lawyer are a good fit for you.
