Posted by Richard P. Hastings | Jun 13, 2013 | 0 Comments

What are some of the things that an insurance adjuster looks at when attempting to evaluate your Hartford Connecticut car accident case? An experienced Hartford injury lawyer will know how to properly develop your accident case so it can be presented to the insurance adjuster of the at fault party to help maximize the value of your claim. It makes a great deal of sense to consult with an experienced Hartford accident attorney at the earliest possible moment so you can learn what you need to be doing and what you should not be doing. If you proceed without getting the advice of an experienced Hartford injury attorney then you run the very real risk of doing something to harm the value of your case.

So what will the insurance adjuster of the at fault party look at in trying to place a value on your Hartford Connecticut car accident case? Generally speaking, this process will not take place until such time as you have reached maximum medical improvement. In other words, you must be at a point where your doctor will discharge you because you are as well as you are going to be. This means that you will either be in the same condition that you were in one second before your accident or that you will have some type of a ratable disability that your Hartford accident attorney will get from your treating physician and or physicians.

There are a great number of issues present in evaluating a Connecticut injury case which could include some or all of the following:

  • The liability or fault of the parties involved
  • The type and extent of the injuries suffered by the victim
  • The medical treatment received for the injuries
  • The recuperative period
  • Past and future medical bills
  • Past and future lost wages
  • Whether or not the injuries are permanent in nature and the extent of the permanency
  • Any scarring 
  • Whether future treatment is recommended or needed
  • The nature and cost of future medical treatment 
  • The future convalescent period
  • How the injuries have affected the injured party
  • How the injuries can expect to affect the person in the future
  • The age of the injured party

Additionally a great number of other issues that need to be investigated and developed.
