Many prospective and new clients ask this question, “What is my case worth?” Of course, at the early stage of a case, no one can responsibly give a value for a particular case. However, we can tell clients what factors are important in determining the value of any case. Virtually, every important aspect of any particular case affects the case value.
Some of the factors are:
- the type of case involved
- the seriousness of the injuries
- the amount of medical expenses and lost earnings
- the long term effects of the injuries
- the strength of the liability claim against each of the defendants
- the amounts of applicable insurance coverage all are significant
Also, we explain to our clients the types of damages that a personal injury victim is potentially entitled to recover. These include, damages for past and future reasonably necessary medical expenses, past and future lost wages, past and future pain and suffering, disability, and disfigurement.
When all significant issues (such as liability, injuries, and insurance coverage) can be assessed, we will at that time make an evaluation of a client’s case. We utilize our years of experience, as well as a proprietary database of over 250,000 actual jury verdicts across the country to assist us in our evaluation process.
Of course, knowing what a case is worth is only the first step. The real expertise is in producing a recovery for our clients that represents fair and adequate compensation for the injuries they have suffered. The Law Offices of R.F. Wittmeyer, Ltd. has recovered millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for victims and families who suffered serious or fatal injuries.
