Q: How much is my personal injury claim worth?

A: That will depend on the severity of your injuries, and many additional factors.  Assuming we can prove the other party was at fault or mostly at fault and that his or her wrongdoing caused your injuries, we will then focus on what your case is worth. The function of the exact nature of your injuries, the estimated total cost of your past and future medical treatment, and any economic losses you suffered, including time away from work will help in determining the value of your claim. Cases involving death, permanent paralysis, permanent disability and the need for lifetime medical care present different considerations than claims for broken bones, cuts or other types of “healing” injuries where the client is fortunate enough to – eventually – return to “normal,” such as work, school or retirement. In any event, at your first appointment, I will review the details of your case and perhaps give you a rough estimate of the value of your claim. We will be in a much better position to estimate that value once you have completed your medical treatment and your condition has stabilized.
