Negotiating an injury with Liberty Mutual? You may be wondering if their settlement offer is fair.
All insurance companies use trained adjusters who strive to minimize settlement payouts in order to control costs. However, this means that they may propose less compensation than you originally asked for in your injury claim.
If you receive a low settlement value in your negotiations with Liberty Mutual, you may have other options than to accept their offer. Call the El Paso injury lawyers of Zinda Law Group at (800) 863-5312 for a free consultation.
Negotiating an Injury Claim with Liberty Mutual
You can determine if Liberty Mutual if offering you a fair settlement for your injury by being prepared in your negotiations. To do this, it is advisable that you conduct a thorough investigation of your injury, and use both economic and non-economic damages to value your case.
Regardless of whether you were hurt in a car accident, slip and fall, workplace injury, or other type of incident, you will benefit from conducting a thorough investigation. This may include gathering witness testimonies, documenting the premises at which the injury occurred, and examining the opposing party’s full insurance policy with Liberty Mutual.
Once you have documented the evidence in your case to the best of your ability, the next step is to calculate the value of your injury claim with Liberty Mutual. You must take into account all past, present, and future costs associated with the injury.
You may want to include medical bills and lost wages at the core of your desired compensation amount. In addition to those economic damages, it is advisable that you thoroughly audit every possible way your injury has and will affect the lives of you and your loved ones.
In many cases, non-economic damages such as pain and suffering, loss of consortium, difficulty sleeping, and more, will play a significant role in calculating the value of your personal injury claim with Liberty Mutual. You may include non-economic effects suffered by your loved ones in your valuation as well.
After adequately valuing your personal injury claim, you should submit your claim and stand firm in your negotiating position. If Liberty Mutual offers you less than what you want in a settlement, you may have the right to sue for full compensation.
If you decide to take your case to trial, it will be up to a jury to decide what compensation you are owed. Many trials take far longer than injury settlements, so that must be taken into account if you are deciding between a lawsuit and a lower than expected settlement value.
