Where Does It Hurt?
No matter what the bodily injury – you can also get hit in the wallet.
And that’s for two big reasons:
- All the contributing causes of the injury have not been identified – with certainty
- The link between event and extent of injury has not been verified – scientifically
In the absence of solid fact, plaintiffs and defendants all too often compromise down the middle on claim amounts. That hurts.
Add up a few years of reluctant compromise and lost subrogation opportunities, and the pain intensifies.
Given that as much as 15% of all insurance premiums may go to pay for fraudulent claims*, insult is getting added to injury. That hurts everyone. It drives up costs and makes legitimate claims harder to win.
Giffin Koerth’s renowned multidisciplinary personal injury team has the range of expertise you need to find all the causes. And to determine if the actual event could have caused the reported extent of injury.
