While every case is different, here are some of the important factors that influence our negotiation with the liability carrier:
a) was the other driver clearly at fault?
b) did the police come to the scene? was the other driver cited?
c) was alcohol a factor in this accident?
d) was the weather a factor in this accident?
e) did an ambulance take you to the emergency room?
f) did you go to the doctor within a day or two following your accident?
g) did you treat with a medical doctor or chiropractor?
h) did you miss days from work?
I) do you have any permanent injuries or scars?
j) how bad was the damage to the car you were in?
k) how much were your medical bills?
l) did you keep a daily diary of your pain and suffering?
m) do you have pictures of your bruises or scars?
You can help us by keeping accurate records of all of your out of pocket expenses and keeping a diary of your daily pain and inconvenience.
You may wonder exactly how much your case is worth. We do not feel that it is proper for us to guess about this until we have had a chance to review all of the facts of your case, speak to your doctor, and speak to the insurance company. We will present all settlement offers to you along with our evaluation of your case. The final decision in regard to your settlement is in your hands
