Factors Insurance Companies Consider When Evaluating an Oregon Personal Injury/Auto Accident Claim – Part Two – The Client

This collection of blogs addresses the many factors Oregon insurance companies consider when evaluating a personal injury claim. Many injured clients don’t initially think about it, but they are one of the factors insurance companies look at.

Insurance companies consider how the injured person and defendant will present at trial. It’s an old but true adage that juries award larger verdicts to people they like. Juries also award larger verdicts against people they don’t like or want to punish. Technically, Oregon law states that factors like these are not supposed to be considered when determining the size of a verdict. However, jurors are human, and it can be very difficult at times to compartmentalize these feelings. As a result, most insurance and personal injury lawyers factor this in when evaluating a claim.

There are many other factors that can have an impact on the settlement offer for your personal injury case. An experienced Oregon personal injury attorney can help you identify your strengths and weaknesses to better help you evaluate your claim and present it to the insurance company. Look for our other blog posts discussing these factors.
