What is the value of my claim?
As an experienced Drexel Hill, PA personal injury attorney, I am often asked “What is my case worth”? There is no exact formula for valuing a personal injury claim. There are, however, many factors to be considered when attempting to predict the settlement value or jury’s value that will be placed on a claim.
A main factor is the nature if the injury. Very simply, a fractured bone that requires an operation will be valued higher than neck and back pain that requires only physical therapy. Similarly, a gash that leaves a permanent scar on a female plaintiff will be valued higher than a burn that leaves a permanent scar on a male.
Another factor is the type and length of the medical treatment received. For instance, a fall down resulting in a concussion with a subdural hematoma and 3 or 4 days of in-patient hospital care will be valued higher than a fall down resulting in a concussion out-patient observation. Contact our Drexel Hill personal injury attorney today to discuss your accident case.
The dollar value of the medical treatment and the dollar value of lost wages suffered as a result of a slip and fall or dog bite injury are also factors to be considered when valuing a claim.
