How Much Is A Personal Injury Case Worth?

The value of your personal injury case is based on the damages involved. Your attorney will total the cost of your accident (medical bills, property damage, mental impacts, lost wages, etc) to determine what your case is worth – and then fight to secure the damages you deserve.

Types of Damages

If you have been injured in an accident, you may be eligible for compensation for the following:

  • Medical costs (including future care)
  • Lost wages
  • Property damage
  • Cost of adjusting to life with a disability (home renovations, in-home care, etc)
  • Funeral expenses (received by family members of injury victims)
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium (received by spouses of injury victims to compensate for the loss of affection, companionship, etc)

Personal Injury Case Timeline

Because no two cases are the same, it is impossible to know exactly how long it will take to resolve your case. That said, most personal injury cases progress this way, with your attorney completing the following steps:

  • Ensure injury victims receive proper care
  • Learn more about your claim/situation
  • Review medical records and bills
  • Make demands and negotiate (when possible to settle without filing a lawsuit)
  • File a personal injury lawsuit (when settlement cannot be reached outside of court)
  • Investigate the other side’s claim during the discovery phrase
  • Mediate and negotiate in a last attempt to settle before trial
  • Go to trial (if mediation is unsuccessful)
