What do insurance companies base their offers on when evaluating a personal injury case?
The main thing insurance companies use to evaluate a personal injury case is the amount of damages that an injured person has sustained. In Texas, this includes your medical bills, lost wages, effect on life and any future medical bills you might incur.
Besides these damages, an insurance company will also look at the facts of the accident. The adjuster will determine whether the injured person will have an easy time proving their injuries are the result of another’s negligence. The insurance company’s offer will also take into account whether the injured person had pre-existing injuries, or a propensity to become involved in accidents or make injury claims.
There are a lot of factors that go into evaluating a personal injury case. Every insurance company is different and weights certain facts of the case differently.
