How Much Is My Personal Injury Case Worth?
A multitude of factors go into the evaluation of a case in determining
its value. It will primarily depend on the cost of your damages.
Among others, your general damages can include:
- physical, mental, and emotional pain and suffering
- permanent scarring
- lose wages
- loss of earning capacity
- medical bills (for treatment undergone and future treatments)
- ongoing treatment for injuries deemed necessary by doctors
Other factors that compensation amounts will depend on include settlement
amounts awarded in previous cases similar in nature to the one at hand,
the curability of the victim's condition, and whether it was negligence
or intentional malice that caused the injury. Our experienced Marietta
injury attorneys will use the various aspects that may aid your case to
gain the maximum recovery available to you.
How Insurance May Affect Recovery Amounts
Experienced personal injury lawyers will examine sources of insurance coverage
to gain compensation for your injuries. Our attorneys and staff will first
request the at-fault party's available coverage, which their insurance
company is required by law to send. We then compare that to the amount
of damages sustained in the accident. If those damages surpass the at-fault's
amount of coverage, other methods of compensation must be determined.
At Jones & Swanson, we understand the best methods of dealing with
insurance companies so that the greatest amount of compensation can be
achieved for victims. In some cases, injury attorneys may even use "
stacking" or "add-on" methods to compensate for victims' injuries.
This allows for multiple insurance policies to be combined to pay for
damages in your case, but the laws governing stacking policies are complex,
so hiring an attorneys that is well-educated in insurance law is important.
Please be wary of attorneys willing to guarantee the value of your case
in your initial consultation or at any time before the extent of your
injuries is known.
