What is Your Personal Injury Case Worth?
This is often a burning question for clients. This is because it is one of the most challenging aspects of the case for injured victims and their families to comprehend. The value or worth of a case will usually depend largely on the nature and extent of your injuries, the level of treatment that you receive and the effect the injuries have on your ability to return to work or earn a livelihood.
For example, if you have suffered relatively minor injuries in a car crash that did not require hospitalization, your case may not be worth as much. But if you have suffered a traumatic brain injury in a car crash that requires lengthy hospitalization and rehabilitation, your case will be worth a lot more. Injured victims can seek compensation for damages including all medical expenses, lost wages, hospitalization, rehabilitation, permanent injuries, disabilities, pain and suffering and emotional distress.
Protecting Your Rights
If you have been injured due to someone else's negligence or wrongdoing, it is important to take certain steps to protect your legal rights. Always file an incident report with the appropriate agency or authority and get a copy of the report for your records. Seek and obtain medical attention and treatment for your injuries. Be sure to preserve all evidence and information from the scene including physical evidence, photographs, and contact information for the parties involved as well as eyewitnesses. Keep track of all expenses relating to the incident and your injuries.
