What is the value of my Personal Injury Case?
Factors in determining the value of your personal injury case.
IntroIt is very hard to know immediately how much money, if any, you will recover in connection with your case. There is no formula and each case is unique. In cases of serious injury, the ultimate recovery is often related to the amount of insurance coverage available, as well as the nature, extent, and duration of your injuries, along with an assessment of liability. As attorneys, we feel it is our primary duty to obtain an amount of money which will fairly and justly compensate you for your injuries. We will make every effort to do this by locating all sources of money. We will advise you of our evaluation in this regard.
In general, most states allow recovery of damages for the following elements of damage:- The nature and extent of injury, including whether the injury is permanent, and the amount of disability.
- Medical expenses, both already incurred and reasonably certain to be incurred in the future. This includes mileage to and from the doctor or hospital.
- Wage loss (past and future) and damage to property (including your motor vehicle and other possessions)
- Pain and suffering.
- Loss of consortium (past and future) for your spouse.
