When reaching out to an attorney for a case evaluation, you probably want to know how much your case may be worth. There is no “one size fits all” for personal injury claims, for no two cases are alike. Some variables have a bigger effect than others, so your case will be unique to what transpired during the accident and who is at fault. There are factors that personal injury attorneys must consider when determining the value of a case.
The severity of your injuries has a large impact on how much your case is worth. If your injuries are more critical, you will want to be compensated more for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and loss of income. Smaller injuries will most likely have less expensive medical bills and require a shorter leave of absence from your job, so the amount of compensation may be affected.
Insurance limits are also another variable that can affect the amount of a personal injury settlement. If insurance limits are low for a policy, the insurance company is not likely to pay more than the policy limit agreement. Even if your case is worth a certain amount, the true worth of the case will depend on the policy of the person who is liable for the accident, as well as your own underinsured motorist coverage to determine how much money is available.
The amount of property damage to the car is also something that a personal injury lawyer will evaluate when handling your case. If you were in a car accident and would like to learn more information about insurance policy limits and how they affect a claim, call Rawlins Law at (858) 257-8778.
