A shoulder injury is a fairly common injury that happens during a car accident in Missouri. The medical treatment and physical therapy can be very painful and expensive. If you had a serious injury or a surgery and the car accident was not your fault, you should discuss your case with a personal injury lawyer in Springfield Missouri.
How much is my shoulder injury worth?
Many things will influence what your shoulder injury claim is worth as a result of a car accident.
Below are some of the factors of a personal injury claim that experienced auto accident lawyers in Springfield Missouri will address with you.
- Who was at fault for the accident? What does the police report say?
- Did you immediately go to the doctor?
- Did your injuries cause you to miss work?
- Was the other driver insured? If not, do you have uninsured and/or underinsured motorist coverage?
- What are the policy limits of the other driver? (This is a huge factor)
For instance, we recently settled a car accident that involved a torn rotator cuff for $100,000. This was the other driver’s insurance limits. Our client missed some work after having a surgery on his shoulder. He was a passenger in a vehicle so, there was no claim that he was at anyway at fault.
An experienced Springfield Missouri car accident lawyer will have more questions you will need to address. All these questions are very important and give the attorney a clearer picture of the case.
