Bicycle Accident Claim Value | Factors
Your bicycle accident claim value depends on several factors. Most significant is your medical bills. Because these accidents often result in very serious injuries, medical treatment can be both costly and lengthy. Likewise, you may be out of work for a while. Lost wages are also factored into your claim value. You are also able to recover emotional damages in a personal injury claim, though this is often harder to put an estimate on.
The value of your claim is often hard to determine at the beginning of your case. We will need to evaluate the full extent of your medical treatment—from initial hospital visits to follow-up treatment to future recovery. That is why it is better to wait and see how your injuries develop before rushing into a lawsuit. However, we can still file a claim on your behalf before we litigate against the insurance companies. That will give us time to gather evidence and achieve a better understanding of the facts of your case.
