In determining what your case is worth, the court will examine several factors, including:
- The duration of abuse
- The type of abuse inflicted
- Types of injuries sustained
- Related current and future medical costs
- Pain and suffering.
Your attorney will also use similar, previous cases to show the types of damages that may be awarded in your particular situation. These factors can be used in settlement negotiations, or as evidence if the case goes to court. It is hard to estimate an actual amount without a review of the evidence and documentation of your specific case.
