Valuing Your Injury Claim

Understanding the Value of Your Injury or Wrongful Death Claim

One of the most important things a lawyer can do for you, if you were injured by the negligence of another, is collect and present the evidence to help the wrongdoer’s insurance company understand the value of your injury claim.

Without clear documentation of your injuries, losses and damages, the insurance company will try to short-change you with a much smaller settlement offer than you deserve. In most cases, injured people recover significantly more money for their injury claim when they work with a lawyer.

If your injuries are serious, you are entitled to maximum financial recovery in your case. The San Francisco personal injury lawyers at Walkup, Melodia, Kelly & Schoenberger will guide you through the process of bringing a successful claim. We have helped thousands of families like yours achieve significant verdicts and settlement offers. See how we have helped past clients.

What Is Full and Fair Recovery?

If you were injured in a motor vehicle accident, by medical malpractice, as a result of dangerous property, or from the use of a defective product, you have a right to be compensated for your injuries and losses. A Walkup attorney will help you document your losses and value your claim by presenting evidence demonstrating:

  • Medical and rehabilitation costs
  • Future medical costs you are likely to have because of your injury or disability
  • Medical equipment you may need
  • Adaptive equipment and changes to your home or car to accommodate a disability (such as a handicapped accessible van)
  • Physical or occupational therapy to help you regain independence
  • Skilled nursing care in-home or in a nursing home
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future earning potential
  • Damages to your car or other property

Why Choose Us

Reason #8

We Try Cases. While most cases settle, some cases need to be tried for our clients to recover full value. Insurance companies and major corporations will not pay full value of a case if they are not afraid of the plaintiff's lawyer in trial. If your lawyers cannot win in trial you have no negotiating power. We win in trial; judges and defense lawyers know that. Our team of lawyers have been honored as "Trial Lawyer of the Year" by the San Francisco Trial Lawyer's Association and the California Chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates.
