If you, or someone you love, has been injured in an auto accident, you probably have no idea what the lifetime costs of the injuries will be. The economic costs can be in the millions, and the personal costs will far outweigh the economic losses. In its latest release of The Economic and Societal Impact Of Motor Vehicle Crashes, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) acknowledged the significance of lost quality of life and other noneconomic damages in car crashes as they impact society as a whole, with lost quality of life making up representing 71% of comprehensive losses. Do not underestimate the value of your claim or the importance of your noneconomic damages.
Full and Fair Compensation
After an accident you are facing huge medical bills and loss of income while you are unable to work. You need money and you need it fast, and that can make it very tempting to accept the first offer you get from the insurance company. But insurance companies never offer the full value of your claim and you will not be able to ask for more later on, when you are left covering the continuing costs of your injuries.
An experienced auto accident attorney can help you recover full and fair compensation for your injuries, compensation that will cover your lifetime costs as well as repay you to some extent for the more meaningful losses such as your pain and suffering and the inability to participate in the activities you used to enjoy.
Most cases are still resolved with a settlement, but your attorney can negotiate a much better settlement than the original offer you get from the insurance company. And, if you do not get a fair settlement offer, you will be in a position to take your case all the way through jury trial.
