Planning for and anticipating tragedy at any moment is viewed upon as a very pessimistic way to live life However, no one is exempt from the fact that averagely every thirteen minutes, one American is involved in an accident that inflicts bodily injury. In the present day, motor insurance is compulsory for any car owner all around the world. The reason for this is the many different accidents that come about by careless and inattentive driving, drunk driving, driving while sleepy, mechanical faults in the car such as failure of brakes, badly constructed roads full of potholes, breaking of traffic rules and bad weather that causes the formation of fog and thin sheets of ice on the road. However, when it comes to bodily injury occasioned by a car accident, the insurance policy does not have a determinate amount of money that is payable to the insured which leaves room for negotiation. Other factors come into play such as age as a young person is likely to get a higher settlement; occupation as someone who has an active job such as an athlete will get a higher settlement due to the deterioration of lifestyle; and the type of insurance coverage policy taken.
It is extremely important that you hire an attorney to handle your settlement with the insurance company for the best possible outcome. This is because attorneys are professionals who are trained in negotiation and making of contracts for their clients allowing you to get the best possible settlement there is.
An attorney will factor in all avenues to raise your settlement money over and above just the physical harm you experienced. One unique approach that has successful feedback when it comes to raising the amount of your settlement money is the emotional distress you were forced to undergo during the motor accident as it creates a situation of mental discomfort and mental illness which had adverse effects on your life up-to-date in the form of trauma which ideally is still health-related and so the insurance company is forced to factor in compensation money for it as well.
An attorney’s tenacious ability to skillfully negotiate and refuse insufficient settlement claims and knock offs over and over while still pressing to get you the best possible available settlement is a feature that will work to your advantage.
