Planning for and anticipating tragedy at any moment is viewed upon as a very pessimistic way to live life Statistics ,however, show that every thirteen minutes, at least one American is involved in an accident that causes them bodily injury despite their being prepared for it or not. Procurement of motor insurance for your car is compulsory and enshrined in almost all jurisdictions around the globe. Law enforcement had to come into play due to the many different types of accidents caused 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. Motor insurance policies usually leave room for settlement in the event of bodily harm or injury that occurred in an accident based on the extent of the injury and how much it has impacted your life. But it is important to bear in mind that there are some vitiating factors involved 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. Using an attorney to represent your claims will cause you to be taken more seriously by the insurance company, represent your version of events and negotiate professionally on your behalf as opposed to you doing it yourself which saves both time and energy while still coming out on top of the deal.
An attorney will make more varied and valid arguments on your behalf to increase your settlement money over and above the bodily injury endured. 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.
Attorneys are known for their ability to hold out until their clients gets what they deserve and therefore when it comes to your negotiation process for an adequate settlement claim, you can be sure that an attorney will reject all insufficient settlements offers as many times as need be until you get an amount that you are comfortable with.
