What is my Case Worth?
Clients injured in an accident often ask: “What is my case worth?” or “How much money will I get in a settlement?” Generally, someone injured in an accident due to the fault of another person is entitled to be compensated, and can be awarded monetary damages, for the following:
-medical expenses incurred for treatment;
-lost wages and/or loss of earning capacity;
-permanent loss of function, disfigurement and/or scarring;
-pain and suffering.
The value of a case is based on several factors, many of which are not yet known when an attorney meets with a client for the first time. How long will the injuries take to heal? What permanent impairment, if any, will remain? How much time will the client be out of work? Is future medical treatment anticipated? Is the accident completely the fault of the other party or did the actions of the client contribute to the happening of the accident?
Even when the answers to these questions are relatively well known, there is no special formula for determining the amount of a settlement or court judgment. However, experienced personal injury attorneys, like those at Yellin & Hyman, PC, know what factors are important, how to gather and evaluate the information that affects the value of a case and, most importantly, how to argue those facts when negotiating a settlement with an insurance company or when presenting a case at trial before a judge or jury.
