How Do Attorneys Decide How Much an Injury Claim Is Worth?

By on February 27th, 2016

To find a total claim value, an attorney will add up the amounts you are entitled to for property damage, medical expenses to date, future medical expenses, lost earnings to date, future lost earnings, and general damages for pain and suffering, and then compare it to similar claims. Since damages for pain and suffering are difficult to evaluate, a second method of assigning a monetary settlement value is used. Your attorney will then review state, regional, and national publications and computerized databases to find similar claims with similar injuries and similar liability patterns to develop a statistical analysis of your claim’s value. If you have been seriously injured through someone else’s fault, you should not attempt to estimate the value of your claim without professional assistance.
