My Son Was Badly Injured In A Motorcycle Crash Caused By A Red Light Runner. He Suffered A Broken Rib And A Punctured Lung, But The Insurance Company Doesn’t Seem To Be Compensating Him Accordingly. How Much Is His Claim Worth?
While we know you want to hear an exact dollar amount that your claim is worth, it is important that you realize that every Florida motorcycle accident injury claim is going to be evaluated differently. We would need to look at your son’s medical charts, understand his exact prognosis, and know what his medical costs have been and will be in the future.
It is important that you do not rush into accepting a settlement offer too quickly before really considering whether the collision will impact your son into the future. This means that you need to take into consideration whether your son will need ongoing medical care, a future surgery, physical therapy, rehabilitation, or whether his injuries will cause him to lose out on making a living.
The insurance company will look at your son’s medical bills, extent of his injuries, and other damages to determine what they feel like his case is worth. However, it is critical that you realize that an insurance adjuster is never going to offer you the full value of what they believe your son’s claim to be worth. They will start out by making you a lowball offer, but keep in mind that they typically have room to increase the amount they are willing to pay.
Beware: insurance companies will attempt to save money even at your expense. This is why it is in your best interest to work with a knowledgeable Fort Lauderdale personal injury attorney to make sure your son received the maximum compensation possible in his case.
