What Will You Receive if You Win Your Personal Injury Case?

After you fall victim to a personal injury, whether it be through a car crash or any other sort of situation, it only makes sense that you will want to start gauging how much compensation you will likely receive. Personal injuries can have serious effects on our ability to stay employed and medical treatment isn’t exactly cheap. As such, there is something to be said for trying to get peace of mind during this time of uncertainty. In truth, it is quite tricky to estimate the value of a personal injury case when it is still early in the process. If you are still in the midst of receiving treatment and a timeline for recovery hasn’t been established just yet, it may be difficult to provide a 100% accurate value. Even still, it is worth observing what you do know as you begin to plan for your future throughout your case and after it. Here are the facts we recommend observing early on in your personal injury case as you attempt to estimate its value. 

Factors that Shape the Value of Your Personal Injury Case

Are your injuries documentable

If your personal injury case involves an injury that is solely characterized by adjectives like painful and uncomfortable, it may be hard to receive a large amount of compensation. However, the value of your case will rise when undeniable evidence, such as x-rays or MRIs, can be presented.

Have you sustained similar injuries in the past?

If you’ve never had an injury similar to your current injury, it will be very clear that all of your new symptoms are occurring as a direct result of your current injury. The lines get blurred a bit when you have had a similar injury in the past, as it can be tricky to prove that your current symptoms are a direct result of the current injury.

Does the injury have long term implications?

Naturally, more serious and long-lasting injuries are generally met with more compensation than those that will easily subside with time.

Do you expect to lose time at work?

Losing the ability to work has major implications when it comes to the value of a personal injury case. The key to remember here is that a physician will need to confirm that the injuries sustained are indeed severe enough to justify the time off for recovery.
