What is a Claim Worth?

In all personal injury cases, if drivers, manufacturers, property or animal owners or other responsible parties are found to be responsible, they will pay damages, which may include past and future medical expenses, lost wages, and property damages. Compensation is also paid for pain and suffering to the victim as well as to family members if the injury caused a death.

Other financial awards may be determined also. A personal injury attorney can help estimate the possible value of a claim based on experience and information about previously settled cases and jury verdicts, but only after analyzing all available information. Be wary of any attorney who makes you promises or predictions in your first meeting or phone call about the amounts of money he or she will recover for you.

Why Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer-How Do I Choose The Best One For Me?

Victims of personal injury deserve the best settlements. In order to do this, having a qualified, experienced personal injury attorney is essential. Whether it is with opposing counsel, insurance companies, witnesses, your friends, family or anyone else involved, your personal injury attorney needs to be able to work effectively and efficiently. Opposing counsel and insurance companies have many tactics to pressure you to reduce and even deny your claims. Your personal injury attorney needs to be competent in dealing with these tactics. Your personal injury attorney will also be able to assist you in determining if your claim may be resolved in mediation, providing you with a satisfactory settlement outside of court to relieve you emotionally and save you time and energy.

The cost of losing your case could be substantial. Most personal injury lawyers work for a contingency fee. This means that they do not receive payment unless you win your case or receive a settlement outside of court. It also means that they believe in you and your case. There are expenses that you would still be charged for, such as those of expert witnesses that review your records, and other fees not directly related to professional fees. Do not let a personal injury attorney gloss over these expenses quickly. Review your signed agreements with another personal injury attorney if possible to protect yourself.
