Determining The Value Of Your Claim
Our auto accident attorneys often find that clients do not know what kinds of compensation — and how much — they can expect to recover in a claim. In a nutshell, auto claims in Massachusetts can include the following:
- Special damages
- Lost earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Liquidated damages
- Out-of-pocket expenses
- Lost wage replacement through personal injury protection (PIP)
- Medical bills
However, in most cases, no one can tell you up front exactly what your personal injury or wrongful death claim will be worth. It requires a thorough investigation by an attorney with extensive experience valuing claims.
At Dane Shulman Associates, LLC, our attorneys take nothing for granted. We will conduct a thorough investigation using every resource available to us, including state-of-the-art technology and forensic accident experts. This includes taking pictures of the scene, identifying and interviewing eyewitnesses, and analyzing medical reports.
We will work diligently to secure a verdict or settlement that provides you with the fair compensation you need for all of your financial needs. Our medical benefits coordination department is committed to maximizing your financial recovery using any and all available sources, including public assistance, private health insurance and no-fault personal injury protection (PIP).
Fault Vs. No-Fault Compensation
Clients often ask about the effects of “fault” versus “no-fault” compensation. In fact, this area of the law is complex and is best handled by a knowledgeable attorney. It is usually a mistake to leave it up to insurance claims adjusters to disclose all the compensation that you are entitled to. A lawyer on your side is qualified to identify, quantify and help you obtain maximum compensation in your case.
