Kinds of Personal Injury Claims:
The majority of personal injury claims will be based on laws of negligence. However, some cases are based on intentional misconduct. Negligence refers to the failure of an individual or corporation to exercise a reasonable amount of care. This reasonable care is that care needed to prevent injury to others. When the failure to exercise reasonable care causes injury or a fatality, the victim may have a right to financial compensation. When a death or injury is caused by intentional or reckless conduct, this might entitle the injured party to punitive damages.

Our Claremore Injury Attorneys Deal With The Insurance Adjuster:
When you pursue a personal injury claim, you will usually deal with the insurance company of the party causing the injury. Whether you’re dealing with an adjuster of the party’s homeowner’s insurance, car insurance or other type of insurance carrier, insurance company representatives share a common goal of denying or minimizing the liability of their insured.
If the insurance adjuster contacts you, the best thing you can do is to refer them to your Claremore personal injury lawyer. Although the insurance adjuster seems friendly, his job is to obtain information that lessons his company’s financial exposure. Insurance company representatives understand how to elicit the types of information that might compromise your claim, so it’s advisable to let your attorney handle them. The insurance company also might request that you provide a recorded statement or sign paperwork under the guise of “processing your claim,” but you should never sign any paperwork or provide a statement to insurance companies. Thus, if the insurance company makes such a request, you should take extreme care.
Injury victims also should avoid settling a claim without talking to a personal injury attorney. The first reason is that the value of a claim can be difficult to ascertain, as a result there is a significant risk that you might accept a low-ball offer that proves insufficient to cover unanticipated future medical bills or lost wages. The second reason is that the insurance company generally will require that you sign a “general release of liability” as a condition for providing a check. Moreover, this type of release is extremely broad. It typically will include even claims and injuries you do not know about when you execute the document.
What Kinds of Financial Compensation am I Entitled to Receive:
