Collecting Damages After a Scottsdale Accident
It is rare when see insurance companies offer a fair settlement to accident victims without putting up a fight first. They may offer you a low award that doesn’t include all your damages or try to assign you fault in the accident to reduce your damages accordingly. Insurance adjusters have several tactics to use to pay out as little as possible for your claim. Hiring your own personal injury attorney shows you are serious about receiving a fair settlement- otherwise, you’re prepared to take your case to trial.
You may not realize all the damages you could be eligible to collect due to your case’s specific facts. If you have expenses like medical bills and time missed from work, you probably also have noneconomic damages like pain and suffering. If you don’t request compensation for these damages from the insurance company, you won’t receive it.
Our Scottsdale injury lawyers can help you calculate your damages, including future damages like lost earning potential and continuing medical expenses. If you have permanent disabilities or disfigurement from the accident, we will make sure you receive fair compensation for this as well. We always try to get this compensation through an out-of-court settlement agreement first because it is faster and less stressful for the client. However, if we take the case to trial, we will vie for punitive damages in your claim.
