Question: How much is my personal injury case worth?
The value of your case depends on the extent of your damages.
The three most important legal elements of damages include:
- Past and future medical bills
- Past and future lost wages
- Past and future pain, suffering, trauma, and emotional distress
After looking at your damages, attorneys and insurance companies compare your case to recent jury verdicts and settlements from personal injury lawsuits, and consider numerous other variables.
Insurance companies want to pay you the least amount possible. As a result, if you are not represented by a personal injury law firm, the insurance company may offer to pay only your medical bills, plus a small amount for your pain and suffering. Sometimes they offer even less.
On the other hand, statistics show that insurance companies settle for far more when an attorney is involved.
Juries traditionally award the largest amounts of monetary compensation. That is why you want an attorney who has significant personal injury litigation experience on your side.
Ultimately, the personal injury lawyer you hire can make the biggest difference in the value of your case.
