There are two important factors that insurance company adjusters may consider when evaluating a personal injury claim: bodily injuries and loss of income. In order for the adjuster to properly value your claim and for you to get the full compensation that you deserve, you need to hire an experienced New York personal injury lawyer to properly “package” your case and present all the necessary information to the adjuster so that he or she can make an informed decision.
Loss of Income
An insurance adjuster cannot calculate your loss of income without having the necessary documentation. Once the adjuster has the information he needs, he will calculate your loss of income by multiplying the amount of hours you were unable to work by your hourly rate, which must be documented.
Bodily or Physical Injuries
In evaluating any type of bodily injury claim, the adjuster will consider the nature of your injuries, the necessary treatment and the permanency of the injuries. Injuries that have ascertainable symptoms and can be easily proven, such as broken bones, are easier to value than other injuries that do not have obvious symptoms, such as soft tissue injuries.
Regardless of what type of injury you have suffered, it is imperative that you seek proper and prompt medical attention both for health reasons as well as to ensure that you get the monetary compensation that you deserve. Our New York personal injury lawyers can provide you with contacts of physicians should you need one.
