What is My Personal Injury Case Worth?

This might be the most common question posed to a personal injury attorney. If you have been injured in an accident, you may suffer all types of losses. You deserve to have those losses compensated and you deserve to be able to move forward after this difficult ordeal. Annutto Law Office can evaluate your case and determine an estimate of what your case may be worth.

Determining Worth

When determining worth of a personal injury case, there may be certain obvious monetary damages to calculate. The cost of medical bills for immediate treatment of injuries is certainly a factor in a settlement amount. On-going medical care is also part of a fair and just settlement. This may include physical therapy, more surgeries, or any kind of follow-up care such as rehabilitative services. Other factors include the severity of the injuries. If the injuries cause significant scarring that can alter your self-confidence or affect your psychological well-being, there may be a greater settlement. If the injuries have impacted your enjoyment of life and ability to live up to family and community responsibilities, that might factor into the amount. If you are young and sustain lifelong injuries, your case may be worth more. Loss of consortium may also make a case worth more, also. Any future medical cost and the affect an injury has on your career goals or income in general will all be weighed. Other factors will include the extent and value of any damages to property, such as your car or other lost property.
