More and more insurance companies are using a computer program called Colossus to help aid determine the value of personal injury claims. Generally the insurance adjuster will tell you Colossus is just one aspect of the evaluation, however, there is a belief that Colossus plays a bigger role.
In our belief the detriment of using a system like Colossus, is the fact that the human element is eliminated from the valuation process. The program does not consider things that you enjoyed but consequently lost due to the injury or pain and suffering. Factors such as having difficulty sleeping due to the pain, which leads to adverse job consequences, being unable to coach your son’s basketball team due to the resulting injury or struggles and frustration someone had to go through to overcome their injury and complete physical therapy. Therefore, it is important to have experience dealing with adjusters and Colossus in order to get the true value of your claim.
