How Much Is A Car Accident Case Worth?
Question: I was involved in a car accident recently. I was rear-ended. My car is drivable, but I was hit really hard. I'm experiencing significant back pain, neck pain, and headaches. How much is my case worth?
Answer: It depends. Every case is unique. There is no chart, graph, or formula to determine how much your case is worth. There are a lot of different factors to consider when determining the value of a case: how badly you were injured, how long it takes you to recover, how much time from work you will have to miss, how much you are paid at work, the type of work that you do, the long-term impact of your injuries on your social and work life, your age, your previous injuries, how much medical treatment you needed, how much medical treatment you will need in the future, how much pain you are in, how much your medical bills costs, and much more.
Ultimately, you will be better off having an attorney represent you or at the very least consulting with an attorney in person about your collision. In most cases, you will be able to recover more (even after attorney's fees) from the insurance company with the help of a good attorney.
