Personal Injury Case Value.
It is very difficult to accurately predict Personal Injury case value at first glance. However, our Santa Monica Personal Injury lawyers believe that it’s important to empower our clients by informing them on what factors can positively or negatively affect their case’s worth.
Our clients tend to feel more in control of their case once they are educated on the basic principles of how a Personal Injury case is valued. Of course, not every decision in a case is simply based on value, but understanding its role is critical to your case’s success.
Personal Injury case value comes down to a very simple concept: the more injured a person is, the more valuable their claim should be. This assumes that the injured person had no “liability” (or responsibility) in causing the accident.
As a result of more serious injuries, the injured client is likely to have incurred more medical expenses, required more medical treatment, and will have longer lasting, and possibly even life-long, injuries.
Our Santa Monica Personal Injury lawyers prove the nature and extent of our clients’ injuries through a variety of ways, including: diagnoses in medical records, extent of medical bills, client statements, witness statements, videos and photos of injuries and damage caused in the accident, and more.
Sometimes a client may have some liability (responsibility) in causing their accident. If that is the case, then their potential case value is typically discounted by their percentage of liability. For example, if a client is 50% responsible for the accident they were involved in, then their case value will be discounted by 50%.
Our Santa Monica Personal Injury lawyers keep an ongoing case value discussion with our clients. As new evidence emerges, we let our clients now how it will impact their case’s value.
