WHAT IS MY CASE WORTH?
It depends. There are a number of factors that dictate the value of a personal injury claim and a wrongful death claim: the location where the injury occurred, the age of the plaintiff, the type of defendant, the extent of injuries, the amount of available insurance, the plaintiff’s job, the type of wrongful conduct involved, and so on.
If a plaintiff lawyer tells you what your case is worth at the first meeting, run the other way! No experienced plaintiff lawyer will be able to give you even a realistic range as to the value of your case until a significant amount of investigative and analytical work is performed. A plaintiff lawyer will need to obtain medical records, meet with witnesses, examine physical evidence, monitor your medical improvement, and explore in detail numerous other factors about your case before a fair value can be determined.
A plaintiff lawyer who tells you the value of your case early on will probably say or do anything to sign you up. Is that the kind of plaintiff lawyer you want representing you or your family?
