A lot of clients ask me from the very beginning, “How much is my case worth?” My answer is, “I don’t know yet.” First of all, you don’t know how your injuries will play out, how you will heal and whether you will recover. Over the course of the case, you must monitor your injuries and continuously seek medical attention until the end of the recovery process so a medical professional can give their evaluation of your injuries as they progress. Second of all, there are other factors to take into consideration, including what type of jury you will have, what the venue is, who the adversary is, what insurance companies are involved, and who the lawyer is for the other side. There are so many factors that until the case gets closer to trial, it is impossible to really give an estimate as to what the case is worth.
Every case is different, so if you hear that a friend received a certain amount of money for their case that was similar to yours, do not assume that you will receive the same amount of money. If you find yourself in a situation of personal injury, it is best to contact an experienced personal injury attorney who can help you begin your lawsuit and evaluate the different factors that may come into play throughout the case.
