Handling your own claim is not always easy. Atlanta injury attorneys are often consulted and hired for this very reason. Things do not always go smoothly or as planned. You may battle insurance companies who may refuse to pay you or accept a lowball offer and find that it will not pay for all your injuries. The following are some things you should know before handling your own claim.  

First, you need to determine the amount of compensation you can expect to receive. You will need to include medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, emotional damage, loss of enjoyment of life, disability and disfigurement. In general, you should  multiply the actual expenses you incurred by five to get a general idea of how much compensation you should receive. If you are offered much less, askAtlantainjury attorneys for help. 

In addition, you should be familiar with common legal terms before handling your own claim. Do you know how strict liability or negligence works? What the difference is between proximate cause and intervening cause? How do you determine property damage value? These are basic questions you should have answers to because they may play a role in your claim.
