Being awarded an injury claim or court settlement is a good step forward in getting the compensation you deserve, but it isn't the end of things. You need to assess the worth of your offered compensation to make sure that it can help you for the duration of your injury, even if the injury lasts for the rest of your life. If pushing for more funding seems difficult, consider a few negotiation points that could help you in case the compensation isn't enough.

My husband does much of our auto repair work himself. We do all that we can to save a dollar when we can, and doing the repair work saves us a small fortune each year. Unfortunately, all of the money that we have saved over the past 15 years has gone to pay the medical bills that we have accumulated during the last several months after a floor jack failed and dropped our car on top of my husband. A few days after the incident, I contacted an injury attorney. I have created a blog to help others that have been injured due to faulty products find some sort of resolution.
