Compensation Calculator Not Enough to Determine a Claim

Is there a formula for determining how much can be won from an insurance company after injury in an auto accident? Are you wondering if you can simply multiply the medical bills by two or three and then make the claim? Or is there some kind of a schedule for compensation after automobile accidents in Arizona personal injury cases? The answer is: No.

Therefore, though I am a certified specialist in Arizona wrongful death litigation, I question reports that provide a “compensation calculator.” While I cannot speak as to how every system works, I find it unreasonable to think that a formula exists for injury claim payments.

In workers’ compensation cases, payment schedules exist. But workers’ compensation in Arizona involves a different set of rules. According to Arizona personal injury law, the value of a claim is the fair and reasonable compensation owed to the person who was injured and is to be decided by a jury or settled based on what a jury would do.

Obviously, physical injury is a key component. Many crucial factors affect the value of an individual case for the matter to be determined by a compensation calculator. Much depends on the county where the accident occurred. It takes a skilled Phoenix personal injury lawyer to know a case’s value in a particular county. A Pima County jury may not award the same amount as a Maricopa County jury for a certain accident or injury.

When and where the accident happened, who was involved, what evidence exists and many other factors add up to the value of a case. Don’t leave your fate in the hands of a compensation calculator. Call Breyer Law Offices, P.C., today for a free evaluation of your case.
