First, the value of the case is based upon the damages you have suffered. Your Personal Injury claim can encompass several different types of damages, such as medical expenses, wage losses, and pain and suffering, and it is necessary to wait until you have completed your medical treatment for the injuries sustained in the accident or until your condition stabilizes prior to evaluating the value of your claim. Second, the amount that you can recover for your claim will depend upon the amount of insurance carried by the at-fault party and, in car accident cases, whether you have additional coverage available to you in the form of un-insured or under-insured motorist coverage. Because of all of the different components involved in evaluating your claim, I will not put a value on your case at our initial consultation, and you should be cautious to proceed with an attorney who claims to know the value of the case at the initial consultation.
