What is my case worth?
People who have suffered injuries caused by someone else always want to know what their case is worth – whether it is worth hiring an attorney to pursue. Many factors go into determining the value of a case. Often time many of those factors cannot be properly evaluated until several months after an injury. DO NOT fall prey to those attorneys who tell you they can value your case after a short phone call, or even after an initial consultation – or worse yet, by having you complete an on-line “pain and suffering valuator.”
An experienced personal injury attorney may be able to provide you with a range of potential “gross” values, depending on how much information you have at the time of your initial consultation, but the attorney and their staff will have most often spent many hours of hard work and analysis before being able to determine the value of your case. Collision data may need to be gathered and analyzed. It may be weeks or months before your treatment is complete and it can be determined whether you will have permanent disabilities that need to be valued. In addition to determining how much money can be obtained on the “front end” of your claim, negotiations must be completed on the “back end” to determine how much must be reimbursed to the insurance companies which paid for your medical treatment.
