The simple truth is the value of your case depends on so many different factors that a lawyer should not give you a value without allowing adequate time for medical treatment, meeting with you and your family, and thoroughly reviewing the unique facts and circumstances of your case. It is important to our team that we fully evaluate your case, including learning about the things that you once enjoyed but can no longer do like you could before your injuries.
The truth is that we can’t know how bad you are injured until you have completed a significant amount of medical treatment to best understand the extent of the injuries. We also factor in lost wages, which means the amount of time you lost from work, and loss of earning capacity, which is when your injuries are preventing you from doing the same work you could do before. This may be long-term if you have permanent injuries.
At the end of the day, the real damages are the ones we learn by meeting with you and your friends/family. We discover what you can no longer do things that you once enjoyed or now have difficulty doing what you could do before your injury. The real damages are how you’re affected knowing that the other person or company could have prevented what happened to you had they followed simple safety rules. The bottom line is that you want to make sure that the at-fault party or company is held accountable and that this doesn’t happen again to someone else.
Every case is different. Be careful if an attorney overpromises how much you could earn for your case. Estimates made based on the value of cases similar to yours may not always be accurate. You should speak to an trial lawyer to learn more.
