One of the most common questions I get in my personal injury practice is, “What is my personal injury case worth?”
The value of your personal injury case is one of two things: Number one, what you and the insurance company agree that it’s worth and settle on in a settlement agreement, or number two, what a jury decides your case is worth after a trial.
The value of your case depends on numerous things — the circumstances of the accident, your age, your medical condition prior to the accident, your injuries, your medical treatment, your medical bills, the amount of your lost wages, and the negative impact on your life, among numerous other factors.
An experienced personal injury attorney is able to evaluate your case and negotiate the maximum settlement with the insurance company. If a settlement can’t be reached with the insurance company, an experienced personal injury attorney is equipped to take your case to court and go all the way to a jury verdict if necessary.
