Helping Clients Fight For the Compensation They Deserve in Delaware & the Eastern Shore of Maryland

Serious accidents can change a person’s life overnight. If someone else is at fault, their insurance company is expected to cover the damages and help you recover what you lost. However, anyone who has dealt with insurance companies can tell you that this is easier said than done. Even with the right representation on your side, it can be difficult to hold negligent parties accountable. At Whitehead Law, an experienced Georgetown personal injury lawyer can help protect your interests and hold insurers accountable.

A common mistake people make is to assume the insurance company wants what is best for the injury victim. This is rarely the case, and accepting their settlements on their word has caused many people to suffer financially as a result. Don’t let this happen to you. Call our firm today.

How Do Insurance Companies Determine Payout for Pain and Suffering?

Insurance Companies take several factors into account when determining the payout for pain and suffering. Factors that insurance companies use are:

  • The severity of the injury
  • What was the medical treatment that you received
  • Recovery time length
  • Long-term effects of the injury

Many small payout settlements are below $15,000. Since most injury cases do not lead to the victim having to go to the hospital to have emergency surgery, the payouts are not in the hundreds of thousands. Insurance companies never use pain and suffering calculators because it only takes a few factors into account; they use their own calculation that takes into account over 70 factors to value your case.

No Fee Unless You Win

Injury cases can be challenging and time-consuming. At-fault parties may stop at nothing to avoid having to pay what they (or their accountants) view as an unreasonable settlement. At Whitehead Law, our priority is to help you get an accurate representation of the damages you will have to cover and then hold the other party accountable for what they owe.

What Should I Do If I Was Injured in an Accident?

It is crucial that you do not jeopardize a settlement by accepting fault or signing a small settlement check.

If you were injured in an accident, make sure to:

  • Take photos if possible
  • Gather witness statements and police reports
  • Get the medical attention you need from a doctor you trust
  • Speak with a qualified Delaware personal injury lawyer right away
  • Do not make an agreement with the insurance company

How Do I Prove My Pain and Suffering?

To prove your pain and suffering, you should show your medical bills and records. Photos can also be evidence of your pain and suffering, such as a cut, wounds, and even videos of your surgery can be proof of your pain and suffering. If your case reaches the lawsuit phase, the defense attorney will look at your medical records. The defense attorney will also ask if you’re exaggerating your pain.
