This is, of course, the $64,000 question. Car accident victims, slip and fall victims and people injured in truck accidents all want to know the same thing.
That’s why I can definitely, positively, absolutely tell you IT DEPENDS.
About 30 years ago many insurance companies used a multiplier to decide the value of your case. They would take the cost of your medical bills and multiply it by a number, usually 4 or 5, and then make an offer based on that. No insurance company does that any more.
Instead, insurance companies consider what your injury is, what body part you hurt, how often you treated and what your doctor’s final diagnosis was in arriving in a range of value .
This idea of range of value is important. If the insurance adjuster has a value of $25,000 to $40,000 then who you select as your attorney becomes very important. If your attorney is someone who does injury cases on a daily basis then they are likely to make the full $40,000 offer to you.
That is a real advantage in going with Pittsburgh car accident and slip and fall attorney Bernie Tully. Because we handle these cases on a daily basis, it is likely the insurance adjuster knows us.They hopefully know we will not get bluffed out or scared into accepting less than the full value of your case.
