Injured in an accident?
What is my case worth?
When injured or in a car accident, people often wonder, “What is my case worth?”
The short answer: it depends. There are many considerations when assessing the value of your case. We can look at past jury verdicts and use our decades of experience to advise what we think the most likely outcome will be if the case is tried to a jury. We pay attention to the details of each and every case to make these determinations, as no two cases are identical.
For personal injury cases, individuals can recover damages for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, property damage and future damages such as future medical expenses.
If you are in a car or truck accident, the property damage is usually straightforward. You will also have medical bills and liens. The amount you or your medical insurance company has paid can be recovered at trial or through a settlement. That number is also typically straightforward. If you lost wages, you need to keep track of the amount of money you missed because of the injury. This includes vacation days.
Future damages, as well as pain and suffering, are more difficult. We encourage you to read our full analysis here.
