How do insurance companies determine the value of my injuries in a motorcycle accident?
Ultimately, your claim is going to be valued based upon your injuries and the extent of medical treatment and medical bills that you sustain. If two people are involved in the same exact accident, one treats a few times and decides he’s going to tough it out and be done with it and wants to wrap it up.
Whereas the other follows their doctor’s instructions, goes to all their appointments, and continues to proceed the way their doctors are recommending. The person who follows their doctor’s recommendations is not only going to have a much more complete recovery at the end, but ultimately their claim is going to be valued a lot higher because there’s more evidence as to their damages because of their more extensive medical treatment and medical bills.
