Factors used to determine damages

After being injured in a car accident, you may be wondering what is the value of my claim. It is a good idea to know the factors adjusters use to value the claim because without having an approximate idea, you run the risk of accepting an offer for less then your claim is worth. Factors that are pertinent it the determination the value your age, awards granted in similar injuries, pain and suffering, the extent of your injury, whether your injury is permanent, earning capacity, and your educational level. It is also important to keep in mind that you can recover for lost wages that were due to accident.
