How Much Is My Injury Case Worth?
The most common question that we get from our clients is “how much is my case worth?” It’s perfectly logical that this is the most frequently asked question, as the amount received from a case will determine how bills will be paid and what steps can be taken to rebuild lives after an injury.
The Truth About Case Value
So what’s the answer? And why isn’t there a calculator on this page to help you determine how much your case is worth?
The answer to both of those questions – the value of each case can vary widely, and there is not a good way to give you an estimate without talking to you and gathering more information.
Why? Because there are so many variables that may not only decrease or increase the amount you receive, but also affect whether you have a valid claim, no calculator could account for all of those variables. The only way to get an accurate estimate of your case’s value is to talk to an attorney. That’s true for not just our firm, but for any law firm handling injury cases.
This isn’t a sales tactic to get you to pick up the phone; it’s the truth. Don’t believe us? Check out this list of issues that need to be considered when creating an estimate of a case’s worth. This list just scratches the surface of topics that go into the math behind determining claim value, but it highlights how complex the process is:
- Type of injury
- Extent/severity of injury
- Pre-existing medical conditions
- Initial treatments received
- Calculation of ongoing care costs
- Likelihood of recovery
- Effect injury has had on your job
- Future impact on employment and ability to work
- Psychological damage caused by the accident
- Value of damaged property
- Cost of repairs
- Fault/negligence apportionment (dividing up who is at fault)
- Contributory negligence reduction
- Impact of the injury on your family
Further complicating this issue is the fact that insurance companies take varied approaches to defending against injury cases, and juries in different courthouses may be more or less sympathetic to an injured person’s situation.
