Knowing when it’s time to seek a settlement of your Kentucky car accident case depends on what your treating physician has to say about your future. When your doctor can assess your future recovery – especially if you might have complications down the road – then you are in a position to more fully assess the value of your damages.
Damages for personal injuries are largely comprised of past and future medical bills, past and future lost wages, and past and future physical and mental pain and suffering. Developing a firm idea of your full damages requires a good understanding of any future medical bills you might incur, and the amount of wages you might not be able to earn.
If you settle a claim too quickly without all of those facts, you likely will be settling for less than what your legal claim is worth. It’s important to remember that once you settle with an insurance company, you can’t go back and ask for an additional settlement. Insurance companies will only settle a claim once in exchange for your agreement to end the case.
