How Much Is My Personal Injury Case Worth?
It may be surprising to learn that this is actually hard question to answer - until you are mostly or completely recovered from your injuries and all the facts of your case are investigated and known. There are some common car accidents, like rear-end accidents. Yet, each and every rear-end accident is different. But, why? Because:
- the people are different
- their bodies are different
- their ages are different
- how the accident happened is different (the cars, their speeds, exactly where one car hit the other car, etc.)
- their medical history is different
- their exact injuries are different
- their treatment is different
- their medical bills are different
- their wage loss is different, etc.
So, sometimes two car accident cases look similar, but end up having very different values. Another important question to ask because it matters a lot to the value of your accident claim is:
How Can My Lawyer Get Me Paid On My Accident Case?
Your case could be serious, and worth a lot of money - - but if there is very little insurance and no assets, then the value of your claim could be a lot less. Do I Have A Good Case? lists some factors that go into trying to answer the question of what your accident case is worth.
Any estimate by any attorney as to the value of your case only applies if the case is settled without going to trial. If any case is goes to trial, there is no way to predict the verdict that a jury will return. This is because human beings are unpredictable; after all, jurors are just human beings.
