Personal Injury Claim

If you have a personal injury claim how do you determine its worth?  Well insurance companies usually look at the particular circumstances if the claim.

First of all they look at the type of damages that you may be seeking compensation for.  Basically the one who is liable for the accident must pay the injured party for medical expenses, disability/ disfigurement, loss of social, family or educational experiences, emotional damage and damaged property.

The insurance company will use a damage formula to determine payment.    The total medical expenses are added up.  These expenses are known as medical special damages.  This is the base amount that is used to determine the amount to pay the injured individual for pain and suffering, and other non-monetary damages or general damages.  In most cases it is advisable to consult with an Injury Claims Solicitor.
