During the month of June, I am addressing common questions that get asked in our practice. Today’s Question is: What is my case worth?
Very rarely can anyone tell you that at the start of your case. If your damages are serious and there is minimal coverage, the settlement may be quicker because of those limits. But there are often issues beyond that, such as subrogation rights, other coverages or defendants who may need to be investigated before the settlement. But, if you have the usual case, it will depend upon the way the injuries affect your life, the opinions of your doctor, and what ongoing medical care that you need which will determine the case value. As I tell each client, your hope is that your case isn’t worth much. That means you got better. Those are some of the happiest clients I’ve ever had. They didn’t get much, but their bills were paid and they have no ongoing issues.
