"What is The Value Of My Claim?"
While it is often impossible to answer this question at the outset, there are many variables that make an injury claim more or less valuable settlement purposes. If an experienced personal attorney in involved in a claim from the outset, most of the time it can be settled for reasonable value without the need to file a lawsuit or go to trial. However, the value of settlement is directly related to the likely verdict in the event that the case was tried to a jury. After all, the insurance company is in business to make a profit and will never pay more than the case is worth.
After we work up cases carefully and fully, like the insurance company, we analyze what a jury would award in the event of a trial. While this can vary widely, there are definite factors that we use to help us reach an educated estimate of the potential jury verdict and in turn help us reach an educated estimate of your claim's potential settlement value. Each and every one of these important factors must be carefully evaluated and combined with our decades of experience as personal injury lawyers in order to arrive at an estimate of the value of your case.
