Personal Injury Settlements
People who are injured in an auto accident, slip and fall, dog bite, or any other injury want to know the monetary value of their case prior to hiring an attorney. The problem most personal injury attorneys have with this question is the unique factors that drive the value of each case.
Personal injury settlements will usually be affected by the extent of the injury, the medical treatment received, wage loss, medical bills, estimated future medical expenses, and pain and suffering. Some specific factors the insurance companies will also consider are: the age of the individual, prior injuries, the main cause of the accident and many more. It is important to keep in mind that this is not a complete list as every case is different.
Determining the Value of your Personal Injury
However, although a personal injury attorney cannot provide you with an accurate value of your case, your attorney can definitely help you build your case to achieve the value it deserves. Your attorney’s efforts to guide you through every step of this difficult process will be a major factor in increasing the value of your case.
