Mark G. Cunningham has handled thousands of car accident and personal injury cases over his 30+ year career. This guide will address the many factors that determine the value of any personal injury case.
I am often asked, what is the value of my case? I am in a unique position to answer that question because I am a trial lawyer, which few personal injury attorneys are, and also because as a former insurance attorney I have been behind the curtain and know how insurance people evaluate cases. I have learned that there are many factors that go into the value of a case.
The assigned trial judge is also an important consideration because he or she will be making important decisions about the admissibility of evidence.
Of course, the nature and extent of your injuries and damages is a very important consideration.
The credibility of witnesses, including you, lay witnesses, treating doctors and expert witnesses, is an important factor.
The ability of the defense lawyer is also an important consideration because many defense lawyers know their way around a courtroom and know how to effectively minimize the damages in a case.
LOCATION OF TRIAL
As examples, the location where the case is filed and being tried is important because prospective jurors in some locations are more conservative or liberal than in others.
