This is one of the most common personal injury questions. The simple answer no personal injury attorney can accurately tell you how much your case is worth until you have completed treatment and ready for settlement. In a general sense, the total value of your case depends on the type and extent of your injuries. For example, in some cases, a victim might sustain serious property damage and was taken to the hospital for an examination and pain medication. If the victim recovers a few weeks later, this speedy recovery is a strong consideration in determining the value of the injury case. Even in serious car accident cases. where the victim had to be rushed to the hospital and required to spend several days there, it’s necessary to understand the full extent of the injuries over time before attempting to place any type of dollar value on the case. If the victim takes a year to recover with the assistance of physical therapy, then the injury case would have a far greater dollar value. Your personal injury lawyer will play an important role to ensure you are receiving proper medical treatment. You are entitled to compensation for medical costs, lost wages, emotional pain and suffering, property damage, among others.
