What is My Injury Case Worth?

You see it everywhere from personal injury lawyers. It’s on phone book covers, park benches, and billboards. “Come in for a free evaluation of your personal injury case.” How on Earth these lawyers are able to foresee the future is beyond us here at The Parian Law Firm, LLC. Do they have magic crystal balls in the back office? Do they drink some kind of special Kool-Aid before computing how much your case is worth? The honest truth is it is impossible to put a value on a personal injury case in one meeting or with one guess.

Just like every person on Earth is different, every personal injury case is different. A thorough investigation into the claim is needed. While we may know that another person or entity is to fault for the accident, there can be lots of lies and misinformation that affect the investigation into the cause of your injuries. It is very rare that all facts are present at an initial meeting in a lawyer’s office or wherever the initial meeting takes place. Every single angle of your case needs to be investigated to maximize your recovery of compensatory damages and possibly punitive damages.

Your injuries are also another factor. Injuries affect people in different ways. Did you have a pre-existing medical problem? If so, medical personnel need to help us determine what injuries were caused by your accident. Even if a condition is pre-existing, your accident may have aggravated those injuries.

Many times, at the initial meeting with a lawyer, you are still undergoing medical treatment for your injuries. A personal injury attorney’s first goal should be to make sure that you are getting the medical treatment you deserve for your injuries. The total amount of your medical bills is an important factor in the value of your case. How can an attorney value your case when you are still undergoing medical treatment? He or she cannot.

Take your time in deciding on a personal injury attorney to represent you or a loved one for injuries from an accident. Be careful with those lawyers that say they will give you a free case evaluation when you fill out your facts in an internet form or once you make an appointment for your initial meeting.
