All personal injury cases and their value depend on three main factors:
- Nature of injury;
- The extent of injury; and
- Duration of injury.
What is the nature of the injury? Sprained muscles, fractured bones, etc...
What is the extent of the injury and medical care? Hospital visit, chiro or physical therapy, surgery, etc...
What is the duration of the injury? A few weeks of care, months of treatment, years of therapy, permanent injuries, etc...
There is no “book” on these cases. No schedules for the value of cases.
This is where an experienced personal injury trial attorney becomes most important. You need a trial attorney because he/she must know what juries do in these cases.
Even though the case will never likely get that far, he/she must be willing to show the insurance companies that he/she is willing to do just that, to get the best value for your case.
The number of medical bills, can but is not necessarily an important factor. We have achieved a great result for clients who have very limited medical treatment. Each case is different.
