How much is my case worth?

This is the most frequently asked question by clients about personal injury claims. After the initial interview, most experienced personal injury lawyers have a general idea of the range of values for the client's case. However, the final determination of the actual value of the case depends on many factors which are most likely not known by the lawyer until after the lawyer has had an opportunity to develop the case. For example, the value of a case depends not only on the nature and extent of injuries, but also on the factual circumstances of the accident or incident giving rise to those injuries. A serious injury may have less value because liability issues are unclear. Fruther, the value of a claim may also be reduced because of comparative negligence on the person bringing the claim. Experienced personal injury lawyers will thus not state their impressions about the value of the case because those impressions will continue to evolve as the case develops. Instead, they advise and make recommendations to the client as to whether a settlement offer is fair under the unique circumstances of the client's case and whether to accept the settlement offer or take the case to trial.
