How Is The Worth Of A Serious Injury Case Determined?
The value of an injury is determined by the severity and permanence of the injury and organized within the legal elements of damage. Under Texas law, legal damages are organized into the following elements:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Past and future mental anguish resulting from the injury
- Past and future disfigurement resulting from the injury
- Past and future impairment
- Past and future pain and suffering
- Past and future lost wages
- Past and future loss of earning capacity
What Is My Responsibility, If Any, In Notifying My And/Or The At-Fault Party’s Insurance Company Of The Incident And My Injury?
In order to help your case along, you should always take it as your responsibility to notify the opposing party’s insurance company contact about the collision. However, a smart strategy would be to retain an attorney and develop a settlement demand package that encompasses all of the elements of damages that you can reasonably expect to recover as a result of the collision. Deciding whether to negotiate a settlement with an insurer or file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver is a discussion you should have with your attorney.
