1. How much is my claim worth?
The type of injury you have suffered will generally determine the amount of money you may recover, but there are numerous other factors that need to be considered to determine the value of your claim. Often times the value of your claim will not be able to be determined until you have completed all necessary medical treatment and all of your physicians have completed detailed medical reports regarding all aspects of your injuries from the accident in which you were involved.
Other factors to consider are whether you incurred lost wages as a result of your inability to work due to the injuries you sustained in your accident.
The available insurance limits which are applicable to your accident are always a factor as well.
What is important is that your personal injury case evaluation is done thoroughly, professionally, and at a point in time when your doctor can predict the nature and extent of your injuries and percentage of recovery.
