How much is my Personal Injury case worth?

There are several variables that affect the value of a case. The main types of bodily injury damages in most negligence cases fall under two categories: Special / Economic damages, and General / Non-economic damages.

Special / Economic damages reimburse you for lost costs you incurred or money you lost out on because of the accident. Common damages include bills for medical expenses, lost property, and loss of wages or income if you cannot work.

General / Non-economic damages compensate you for losses that are not tied to an actual expense. These damages include pain and suffering, loss of normal life and enjoyment, disability, disfigurement, loss of consortium, and loss of society.

The value of your claim may be impacted by many of these variables. These include the total cost of medical bills, whether future medical care is needed, and how the injury affected the quality of your life.

It is important to consult with an experienced injury lawyer to ensure all available damages are pursued toward the total compensation of your case.

Determining who is at fault for a collision or accident is often complicated, particularly when there is more than one party involved. Gathering evidence of damages including photos of the accident scene, witness statements, surveillance video, past and future medical bills, loss of income, and how the accident affected your quality of life are critical to obtaining the highest monetary recovery. This is best done with an experienced attorney who has guided you from the beginning of your case.
