What is the value of my personal injury case?
It is impossible to make a completely accurate forecast of how much your case is worth. One of the most important things our personal injury lawyers will do for you is keep track of all possible losses that could stem from the injury. This can translate into a wide range of compensation for costs that go far beyond your immediate losses. Current medical bills, future medical bills, lost wages, lost future earnings, rehabilitation and therapy costs, as well as pain and suffering are all costs that can be covered if your case is successful.
Below are some of the factors that are considered when evaluating the value of a case.
- Details of the accident
- Severity of injuries sustained
- The degree of fault for each party
- Employment history
- Ability to work
- Life expectancy
- How you obtain medical treatment
- Litigation history
A personal injury lawyer at Balkin & Mausner can help you understand the type of compensation you may receive after a verdict or settlement is reached. Time is your most valuable resource when it comes to your personal injury case. The sooner we begin compiling evidence and the fresher the accident is in your mind and the minds of your loved ones, the more likely you are to have a favorable outcome. Remember, the other party has probably contacted a lawyer. The more time you wait, the longer the responsible party’s legal team has to build a defense.
