One of the most common questions that injury victims have for their attorneys is what their case is worth. Of course, nobody can put a value on limbs, or health, but certainly injury victims want to anticipate what they can expect from an injury lawsuit. There are no easy answers to this question, and a number of factors will be weighed to come to a value. Many of those factors may not even be determined until months or years after your initial injury.
How Injured are You?
One factor is how you recover from your injury. As humans, we often recover at different levels even with the same injury. One person with a wrist injury may never be able to write again. Another may recover so well that he or she is back to playing sports. This makes value evaluation difficult in the early stages, as your medical improvement has not yet been determined.
