What Is My Case Worth?

After you have been injured in a car, truck, motorcycle accident, work related injury, slip and fall or any other type of accident, everyone begins to wonder what their case might be worth.

First off, it's important to understand that no attorney or law firm can give you an exact dollar amount from a phone consultation, or even in the initial weeks following your accident. If any attorney tells you the exact value of your case before you completed your treatments, than that attorney is simply lying to you. The attorney must work carefully to monitor your case as it progresses and use many factors to determine the approximate value of the case. This helps us to get a better understanding its value. Please remember, if your case does not settle and needs to to to trial, the value of the case is what the Judge and/or Jury decides. If your case goes to trial, we use multiple strategies in an effort to maximize a recovery.

There are many of factors attorney's use to determine the value of a personal injury claim, including:

  • The extent of your injuries (bruising, scarring, fractures)
  • The extent of your medical treatment (ER, physical therapy, surgery)
  • The length of your medical treatment.
  • The extent of any property damage.
  • The cost of your medical treatment
  • Your ability to return to work and the nature of your work
  • Whether you will have future lost earnings
  • Whether you will have any permanent loss of function
  • Whether you will need future medical treatment
  • Your out of pocket costs, if any
  • The extent of your emotional pain and physical suffering and loss of your everyday lifestyle and activities.

Judging by the extent of your injuries (bruising, scarring, fractures), and the anticipated medical treatment, surgical costs (if any) and loss of past and future income, Mass Injury Group can give you an estimate as to what your case might be worth. Still, there is no way of predicting an exact monetary value of any personal injury claim before all of your damages are clear.

Some claims could be successfully won through negotiations and mediation while others might wind up in court to be heard by a jury of your peers. Regardless of the extent of your injuries and property damage, it's absolutely critical that you speak with an attorney about them sooner rather than later. All personal injury claims have a statute of limitations and if you fail to file a claim in time, you will forever lose your right to file a lawsuit. Please contact the Mass Injury Group to learn more.
