How much is my personal injury case worth?
You recently get into an accident. The insurance company won’t budge and refuses to pay your claim. The situation has gotten so bad that it’s starting to look like it might end up in a courtroom. Before you go through the process, you want to know just how much you will get in the end.
Making the decision to go to court is definitely not a light one. And certainly you should take into account whether spending all that time and stress will pay out in the end. Although we at the Law Offices of Anthony Carbone, PC cannot tell you exactly how much you will be expecting from your claim, we can give a general idea of how much your case is worth.
First, understand that the majority of personal injury cases are considered “compensatory,” which means they are intended to compensate the loss that you experienced after an accident. When trying to figure out how much was loss worth, it can get tricky. Of course, it’s easy to get a reimbursement for property damage or medical bills. But when it comes to something such as pain and suffering, that’s when it becomes complicated. To put a monetary value of such damages, the court will take into account of how the accident has affected your daily life, such as any ongoing pain you have because of the accident, the loss of enjoyment you used to have such as hobbies, and even how your emotional well-being has changed since the accident.
