You are entitled to be fully compensated for your injuries. In legal language, you are entitled to “be made whole”, meaning to be put back in the same position after the settlement as you were in immediately before the accident. Since the person/entity that caused your injury cannot go back in time and prevent their negligence from harming you, the law requires them to adequately compensate you for your injuries. This compensation is called damages. When it comes to damages, one thing is certain: do not expect to get adequately compensated for your injuries by what the insurance company will offer. Insurance companies are in the business of making money. The way they do so is by collecting premiums and paying out as little as possible to compensate injured people. Their adjustors and attorneys have one purpose only: minimize the amount they have to pay you to make you “whole”. Oftentimes this means they will not even agree to pay you for all of your medical bills or lost wages, claiming the bills are excessive or the medical treatment was not necessary. In serious injury cases, they may dispute the nature and extent of your injuries and the impact your injuries will have on your future and type of medical treatment and care you will need for the rest of your life. In essence, they will try to minimize your claim regardless of your injuries.
