Determining the worth of your claim will depend on the type and details of the case, the severity of your injuries, and insurance limits, among many other factors. Specifically, when determining how much your case is worth, at least five things are likely to be taken into consideration, assuming that liability is clear. These considerations include:
- Past medical bills;
- Future medical bills;
- Lost wages;
- Loss of earning capacity; and
- Pain and suffering.
There is no blueprint for determining a case’s value. However, based on our experience with past cases, we may be able to estimate a ballpark value of your case once we have gathered all medical records and statements and have an idea as to whether the client’s physical and mental state has improved or worsened from the date of injury, among other things.
