Good Claim-Expect Some Challenges

How you handle your possible injury claim from here on out could make or break your future prospects.

Moving forward with your claim will likely be a smart move on your part. While the company may try to challenge some of your claims, other parts are probably well in your favor. You probably have a lot of money at stake, so be careful moving forward to handle everything properly.


How the Claim Evaluator Works

All of the questions we ask are important for understanding where the strengths and weaknesses are in your case. Your education, salary, experience, and medical history all tie into how valuable your claim can be and relate to the potential damages you can collect. Each answer option provides a brief explanation of why and how it factors into the value of the case.

Understanding the Results

Your score will fall into one of three ranges:

  • OK Claim-Expect Some Challenges- Some of the answers you gave indicate that you will face multiple challenges in pursuing your claim.  This does not necessarily mean you don’t have a valuable claim.  All it means is that you can expect the company to throw the usual defenses at you while you move forward trying to collect a fair settlement.
  • Good Claim-Expect Some Challenges- Moving forward with your claim will likely be a smart move on your part.  While the company may try to challenge some of your claim, other parts are probably well in your favor.  You probably have a lot of money at stake, so be careful moving forward to handle everything properly.
  • Great Claim-Your Case Could be Very Valuable- You want to be very careful moving forward.  Your future has probably been very affected by your injury and you may have the basis of a very valuable claim.  A lot is at stake for you, and there are definitely right and wrong ways to handle things to make your future better.  Speak to an attorney as soon as you can.
