Many clients ask about the value of their personal injury case. They were in a car accident, and they want to know how much it’s worth. We had a client in Tampa recently that asked that question at the initial consultation. It’s very difficult to evaluate your claim at the beginning stage in the consultation. The reason is it’s because a lot of times when you come in, your medical treatment isn’t complete. You haven’t reached what’s called maximum medical improvement.
With insurance companies, their job on the other side is to adjust the claims and try to pay out as little as possible and get the case resolved. The real essence of determining the value of the claim involves multiple factors. It’s not just your medical bills. You don’t need to hire an attorney if it’s just a case where you have a few medical bills that you can add up and give out to the insurance carrier. What the insurance carriers will typically not tell you is that there are elements to the claim.
There’s the cost of future medical care that you’re reasonably certain to incur. There’s pain and suffering. There are lost wages, too, to consider. These are matters that go into the valuation of a case.
Just like anything, if you’re evaluating a business or a commercial building, it’s the same concept. You want to be able to evaluate it. A lot of times patience is a virtue, and you need to finish out with your medical treatment. We’d love to evaluate your case and try to determine what the value is. Give us a call.
