Q: How does an insurance company decide how much they will pay to compensate someone for an injury?
A: Insurance companies will look at the liability or the fault aspect of the case as well as the damages and will analyze whether it believes it’s insured, is it fault in the case or partly at fault in the case, and it will also look at the nature and extent of the damages. Insurance companies are highly skilled in evaluating cases given the fact that they have had thousands and millions of such cases. They generally categorize such cases depending upon the injuries you sustained and they offer an amount based upon what they’ve offered in the past and what they’ve seen juries give when cases go all the way through a jury. Again, they will analyze the issue of fault or liability, and they will analyze the nature and extent of the injuries including any future damages and future medical treatment that’s going to be needed.
