Factors That Will Increase or Decrease the Value of Your Personal Injury Claim

First, let's start with a look at some ways that many claimants decrease the value of their claim without even knowing it. There are a number of other factors that will be in play to affect the value of a claim, but here are the 9 most well known proven ways to ruin your chances of getting a fair injury award:

1. Make all kinds of apologies at the scene of the accident. Express to everyone how sorry you are.

2. Let the insurance adjuster record your statement, and give her a blanket medical authorization.

3. Exaggerate your injuries to your doctors and to the adjuster.

4. Do not bother to follow up the accident documentation by getting photographs or witness statements.

5. Either (or both) delay in seeking medical help, or do not follow up with medical recommendations or treatment.

6. Get angry at the adjuster and let him know just who is the "boss" in this claim.

7. Do not keep a diary, but rely upon your memory to record events.

8. Keep all of your records in a shoe box and photocopy them and send them en masse with your demand letter.

9. Brag to friends, co-workers, and family members about what you are going to do with all the money you are going to get from this claim.
