Personal injury litigation boils down to money. If your lawyer believes that your case is worth significantly more than what the insurer is offering, and it is unlikely that the insurer will increase its offer in pre-suit injury settlement negotiations, then it is time to file a lawsuit.
But how far apart do the two sides need to be before filing a lawsuit makes sense? This is where you must remember that car accident injury claims do not have a specific value; instead, they have a range of values.
This is because part of the value of a car accident claim is the injured person’s pain and suffering, which is not typically subject to exact calculation.
