Your personal injury case settlement may have factors that you may not have considered. A Stamford personal injury advises on these factors.
One aspect that affects the value of your settlement is the loss of consortium. This varies from case to case. Sometimes the loss of consortium has little or no value, but if your spouse’s life was highly negatively affected by your injuries and you have evidence of this, then the value for loss of consortium may be high. The following can be considered:
A Stamford personal injury attorney knows that another factor affecting your case value is the insurance company itself. Some are more conservative (or cheap) than others. Some are more fair. They are in the business of processing these claims, and know when it is in their best interest to defend a case, and when to settle. If your carrier is conservative, this must be taken into consideration when you evaluate your offer.
