Personal Injury Claims: Injury FAQs

There are a number of questions that arise after a car accident with regards to the injury sustained and proving elements of the accident.

Q.: How do I value a fractured foot in a car accident settlement demand?

Note that when determining the value of a car accident claim there is no set formula that can be applied a dollar amount miraculously comes out. The same is true with a fractured foot injury. Because there are a number of variables that come into play. When determining the value of a fractured foot the following questions must be answered so as to value the injury:

  • How serious is fracture?
  • How extensive was the resulting medical treatment?
  • Did the injury cause you to miss work? Or is mobility not an issue in your work?
  • Who was at fault for the car accident? Or is the issue still in dispute?

It is necessary to come up with the right amount of money to ask for when making your claim. However, realize that the figure is determined by the specifics of your situation and the answers to the above questions. The demand letter describes the car accident and explains how it happened and why the other driver was at fault. In addition, it summarizes what your supporting witnesses have said and provides any detailed findings contained in a police report.

It is important that you document any effects of the accident and your injuries, including lost income, discomfort, and any missed opportunities. This includes factors such as medical expenses, past and future lost income, vehicle damage, injuries and pain and suffering.

Q.: Can a lawyer prove a car accident caused my nerve damage?

It is important to note that ‘a lawyer does not necessarily try to prove that a certain injury resulted from a car accident, rather the focus is on getting appropriate medical documentation to support nerve damage claims.
