There are many factors that determine the value of a case. Some of these include:
Liability: who is at fault in the accident? How easy is it to prove?
Extent of injury: for instance, is the injury a minor sprain or a compound fracture?
Loss of income: No loss of income will not be compensated as much as someone losing a large amount of income.
When you get to a stable plateau in your medical treatment and we have an idea what your loss of income is, what your lost future earnings are, and have determined how much you’ll be affected in the future by virtue of the injury you have sustained, at that point we can make a determination as to how much a case is worth.
Because of all these factors, it is critically important to hire an attorney with extensive experience and competence in the area of personal injury.
