Avoid Online Claim Calculators

Avoid Online Claim Calculators

by Nov 20, 2020

If you’re injured in an accident that turns out to be the fault of another person or business, there’s a good chance you can make an injury claim in court and recover medical expenses and lost wages. However, if you search online you’re likely to come across many websites (and lawyers) that offer “claim calculators” that supposedly tell you how much money you can get.

These online claim calculators are, to be blunt, 100% scams. No website and/or calculator can tell you with certainty what your injury might be worth in court. While it is impossible to know in advance what a claim is worth or for how much it will settle for, here are some things that you should know:

1) What Are You Entitled To?

When you are injured you are entitled to recover the reasonable cost of your past and future medical bills, your past and future wage or earnings loss, and an amount to compensate you for your pain and suffering resulting from your injury.

Additionally, your spouse may have a claim for damages even if he or she was not injured.

2) Don’t Pay An Attorney Upfront

Most reputable attorneys do not charge any fee until or unless they win your case and make a recovery. Most attorneys will also advance all the costs for the case upfront.

If you need medical care, a local personal injury attorney can connect you with doctors and healthcare facilities who can treat you even if you do not have health insurance.

3) Always Work With A Local Attorney

You should be represented by a local attorney who has a real office near your home. Many law firms advertise all over the state. Be sure to ask if the attorney who will be handling your case works every day at the office near your home or if this is merely a “satellite office”.

There is nothing more frustrating than being represented by a lawyer who you can never see or talk to.
