What To Say About Your Claim

When you’ve got an insurance claim in process, you have information that a lot of people may ask questions about. You may have casual conversations with friends or colleagues. And you will certainly face questions from the insurance company.

However, fielding these questions is tricky and can very easily jeopardize your claim if you speak too freely. There is no more difficult prospect than speaking with the insurance company. This is why it is advisable to have a lawyer speak on your behalf.

Attorney Tock and our team understand the complexity of the law and how to answer questions in a way that won’t compromise your case. Our knowledge allows us to be informative without going too far. We act on your behalf to secure you the compensation you deserve for injuries.

Common Injuries In Personal Injury Claims

A personal injury claim relies on the physical injury that you or a loved one received. From a car crash to a slip-and-fall to a dog bite, there are certain injuries that are normal occurrences, including:

  • Broken bones: Possibly the most common injury from a car accident, they can take a significant amount of time to heal. They also can be extremely painful and even life threatening under certain conditions.
  • Burns: Burns are some of the most complex injuries a person can receive. They range deeply in thickness and size. The more extensive the burns are, the more complicated and long lasting the treatment is.
  • Puncture wounds: Puncture wounds can be any force that breaks the skin and enters the body. They can be caused by foreign objects in a car crash or dog bites. Often, punctures come with infection risks.
  • Brain injuries: Brain trauma can lead to long-lasting effects that totally change how you interact with the world. The brain is a complex, difficult-to-heal and extremely important organ.
  • Spinal cord injuries: Damage to a spinal cord can lead to paralysis and other nervous system issues. Lifelong treatment and complex outcomes are common.

A lawsuit would pursue monetary compensation for your injuries, but how much your injury is worth is difficult to answer. There is no single equation that approximates the cost of a broken bone when healing time and impact on a day-to-day experience varies so much between people.
