Working together through the settlement process
A settlement amount is highly dependent on numerous factors. These include the liability facts, the nature and severity of the injury and the victim's treatment record, and other conduct. That is right, the injured party must take specific action to protect his or her rights to compensation.
The insurer will want to know what kind of medical treatment you received and how faithful you were in attending your appointments and following through with prescribed treatment. If you did not seek treatment, withheld information from your doctor or did not keep your appointments, you are allowing insurance companies the opportunity to break any causal connection between the accident and your subsequent medical problems.
Further, the insurance company will consider whether your injuries could be attributed to preexisting conditions or if they were a direct result of the accident. They will also consider the records and reports of your healthcare providers concerning their professional assessments of your condition, treatment and future prognosis including whether or not you have permanent residuals.
Our job as your legal team is to gather and present the evidence in a thorough and compelling manner, having sound arguments for any objections or questions the insurance companies may present. Your job is to seek medical attention, follow doctor's orders completely and attend all appointments without fail.
