Questions About Recovering Injury Compensation | How Much Compensation Can I Receive?
The amount of compensation you are eligible to receive will depend on three factors: the extent of your injuries, the circumstances of the case, and the amount of available insurance coverage.
Medical expenses, time away from work, emotional damages, and any restrictions on an injured person’s ability to function normally are all things to look at when determining the extent of your injuries. The circumstances of the case include how the accident happened and the amount of fault both parties are responsible for. Available insurance coverage depends on the specifics of your insurance policy/coverage.
Questions About Recovering Injury Compensation | Should I Take the First Settlement Offer?
Sometimes a representative of an insurance company will reach out to the victim of a personal injury with an early settlement offer. This may be a perfectly legitimate, just, and even generous offer – or it may not. In any case, it’s best to consult your attorney and to wait before responding or accepting. If you’ve been injured, you won’t be healed overnight. If you’ve been offered an early settlement, you should wait to see how your injuries heal, adjust for complications that arise, and let some of the other particulars of your case play out. Once your recovery seems to be progressing, your attorney can help you come to a decision about an early settlement offer.
