When you are seriously injured because of someone else’s negligence, you may feel angry and frustrated. Getting compensation for your injuries is something that you can do with a personal injury claim. Everyone who starts a claim wants to know what their injury case value is.
Injury Case Value | How It is Determined
One of the most ubiquitous questions we’re asked by clients is, “How do you determine how much my case is worth?” To that, all I can reply in good faith is that it’s determined on a case-by-case basis. I have to look at each individual’s details. I won’t just say,” Okay. This is a broken arm. It’s worth this much.” Why? One person’s broken arm may be worth a lot more than another’s – especially if, before the injury that person was much more active, is now unable to do their job any longer, or can no longer pursue many of the other activities they previously enjoyed. In our firm, every case is evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
Injury Case Value | Insurance Payouts
When I see commercials on TV in which people ask, “What is your case worth?” I really think those are solicitations for clients like ours to go somewhere else for a second opinion. In those situations, people should realize that the actors they see on TV aren’t really the people who were injured. When I see a client, who won a three- or four-million-dollar recovery, I know it’s because that person was seriously hurt, and they’re not going to be seen smiling and dancing on TV about it. That’s for sure. Usually, when an insurance company pays out that kind of money on a claim, the person was very seriously injured. It’s no laughing matter, and it shouldn’t be taken lightly by anybody.
