When Knoxville residents are buying a house, car or other important asset, one of the most important factors in the process is having a good idea of what the asset is worth. Without the ability to properly value the asset, individuals risk throwing their hard earned money away and getting a bad deal.
In some respects, obtaining compensation after a car accident or other personal injury claim is similar. An injured party can bring a lawsuit against a negligent driver in order to recover damages. However, the injured person needs to have a solid grasp on what the claim is worth in order to know how to properly proceed in the action.
For instance, insurance companies often try to low ball injured individuals with an offer that will save the company money. Accordingly, if the injured individual does not know that his or her claim is worth far more than they are being offered, they may accept the offer against their own best interests.
This is where our firm can step in and help injured persons. We have a great deal of experience in dealing with personal injury actions, and that experience has given us insight into how much a potential claim may be worth. Accordingly, we can help evaluate whether a settlement offer is reasonable or whether our client would stand a much better chance of maximizing his or her compensation by pursuing litigation.
Once in litigation, we can help our clients maximize their claim by evaluating the different areas in which a person's life has been or will be impacted because of the injury. Once again, individuals may not even realize all of these areas immediately after the accident, and therefore it pays to have an advocate working on their behalf.
