If you or someone you care about has been injured in an accident or if you slipped and then fell and are now injured, it is typical to wonder how much value will my case have. In order to determine the value that your particular case may have, certain things such as how bad your injuries are, how much money they case or how much did you suffer emotionally as well as mentally must all be taken into account. These things can be difficult to figure out on your own and often require an experienced lawyer.

We will help you determine how much value your case may have and help you to get any compensation you may need for what you suffered.
What kinds of damages are considered in a personal injury case?
When someone is injured, paperwork, documents and photographs can tell you how severe their injuries are, how much it cost them and even if they lost any income. Some other types of damages are harder to prove such as physical and emotional pain and suffering you feel as a result of your accident or injury. Some of the types of damages that are considered when deciding the value of a case include:
- Medical care costs- compensation for any medical care you have received as well as being reimbursed for any care you may have received before. This also includes the cost of any care you may need in the future.
- Any loss of income- If your accident or injury caused you to have be out of work, then you may not only receive compensation for income you have lost but also for income you may have be able to make if your injury had not occurred.
- Damages to property- if your car, house, or personal property was damaged as the result of your injury, then you may qualify for compensation for any repairs that may have been needed or any property that was lost.
- Pain and suffering damages- You may be able to receive compensation for any physical, mental, or emotional pain you have suffered due to your accident. This may include any anxiety you feel, as well as any inability to enjoy daily living activities you used to be able to do before.
What else may determine the value of my case?
In any personal injury case fault usually has to be determined. If you were at fault for your injury even a little bit, this may determine the value that you can receive for your case. If someone else was at fault but you failed to seek treatment for your injuries then this also may have a bearing on the value of your case.
