Calculating the Value of Your Claim

Calculating the value of a personal injury claim can be difficult because the settlement or verdict amount often depends on certain factors. Before awarding damages, the court needs to evaluate the circumstances of an accident and the victim’s injury-related financial losses. In certain scenarios, an injury may not even be eligible for compensation. It’s important to contact an experienced attorney before agreeing to an insurance company’s settlement offer. We can help you calculate the full cost of your claim and negotiate with the insurance company to ensure that you receive the damages your injuries warrant.
