What’s My Case Worth?

The worth of a personal injury case is hard to quantify. There is no magic formula to calculate the exact value of a case. Because every personal injury case is unique, the value of each claim is also appraised individually.

In a 2019 report released by the Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV), the state had a total of 236,753 motor-vehicle accidents that resulted in injuries. Approximately 14,200 of these were incapacitating injuries that required hospitalization and left the victim with disabling injuries such as severed limbs and bone fractures.

Regardless of the severity of your accident, our accident lawyers in Pembroke pines, FL can help. As part of our advice to our clients, we have prepared (below) 5 steps to calculating the value of your case.

We Asked An Attorney About 5 Steps to Finding Out How Much Your Case is Worth

1. Assessing the damages

The initial step is determining how the injury has affected you. It may include the severity of the injury, the medical bills incurred, the income and time you lost for missing workdays, and the effect of having an injury on your mental health, family, and lifestyle.

2. Determining the Parties at fault

Next, your personal accident attorney will consider which among these damages were caused by the defendant. After all, you can only hold the defendant responsible for the harm they caused. The defendant will also have a lawyer or an insurance company attorney represent them and try to limit their client’s liability.

3. Finding the cause

In this step, your lawyer will try to determine whether the defendant’s actions that lead to your injury can really be considered a wrongful act. The defendant should have violated something or was negligent of their responsibilities to make them liable.

4. Collecting evidence

Even if what you say is true and your attorney believes it to be true, you should be able to prove it to an impartial jury. To do so, there should be enough evidence to prove what you have both deduced in the first four steps.

5. Calculating the damages

If you are worried about the expenses, then you may be interested in our no-win-no-fee personal injury lawyers at AskMyAttorneys. We make sure that our clients can get the compensation that they rightfully deserve. And if we don’t get your money for you, you don’t need to pay for our services.

How much compensation will you receive? Ask An Attorney To Assess Your Individual Case For Free!

By filing a legal claim, there are several factors that can help determine the compensation you may receive. You may start by answering the following questions:

  • Whose fault was the accident?
  • What are the details leading to the accident?
  • What is the extent of your injuries?
  • Do you have evidence to support your claim?
  • How did the injury and the accident affect your life?
  • How much are your medical bills?
  • How will it affect your life in the future?
  • What is your insurance coverage?
  • What is the insurance policy of the person liable for your injury?
  • Is there only one policy covering your injuries or may there be multiple policies?

Although we can’t answer the “how much” question with an exact figure, we can help you determine the monetary damages that you are entitled to receive for your injuries.

What monetary damages are you entitled to?

According to our personal injury lawyer in Pembroke pines, there are several types of monetary compensation that you may receive for sustaining serious injuries in accidents. This depends on the following factors:

  • The type and severity of injuries you suffered
  • The medical treatments and surgeries you had
  • The follow-up treatments, surgeries, and rehabilitation you need to undergo in the future
  • The length of recovery time
  • The expected number of missed workdays and loss of income because of the injuries
  • The cost of treatment, including doctor fees and other medical bills
  • The chance of being permanently disabled, disfigured or scarred
  • The presence of witnesses to the accident
  • The expert opinion of medical professionals

It is hard to give value to something so personal, such as the toll of the injury to your mental health and lifestyle adjustments you had to make because of the accident. Although these things are essentially subjective and hard to quantify, they are still considered when calculating the reimbursement you are entitled to receive.
