1. HOW MUCH IS MY CASE WORTH?

ANSWER: Unfortunately, there is no one answer to this question. Factors that have to be considered are:

a. The injuries you suffered.
b. The amount of your medical bills.
c. The estimated amount of your future medical bills. In severe cases, we hire a life care plan expert, along with your doctors and economist to testify as to the amount needed to care for you through the remainder of your expected life.
d. The amount of time you have missed from work and how much time you will expect to miss in the future.
e. The affect your injuries have on your activities of daily living.
f. Whether the at-fault party has the ability to pay.
g. Whether the at-fault party has insurance coverage.
h. If the at-fault party does not have the ability to pay or no insurance or low policy limits, then in auto accident cases we will examine your insurance to determine whether you purchased coverage referred to as Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage.
i. Whether you may be partially to blame for causing your own injuries. For example, if you were not wearing your seatbelt the jury may consider whether you would not have suffered some or all of your injuries if you had worn a seatbelt.

From the first meeting and throughout our representation, you should never hesitate to ask this question. We may not be able to give you a precise answer, but together we will identify your goals for the case.
