How Much Is My Case Worth?
At the Tampa law firm of Anderson & Anderson, we often hear the question, “How much is my case worth?” after a person is involved in a major accident or is badly injured. It is natural to be curious about exactly how much the insurance company will pay.
While every case is unique, here is some general information about how the worth of a personal injury case is determined.
Looking At Economic And Noneconomic Losses
When determining how much a case is actually worth, it’s important to consider both economic losses (lost wages, medical bills, etc.) as well as noneconomic losses (pain and suffering, etc.).
Before we help you negotiate a settlement or take your case to court, our lawyers will look at many different factors, including:
- The type of injury and degree of injury
- How long medical care will be needed
- The level of physical pain suffered
- The amount of mental and emotional pain suffered
- How much money was lost due to missed work
- How much liability the other party has under Florida’s comparative negligence laws
- Your age, earning capacity and other factors
Making Sure That You Get The Money You Deserve
Our attorneys will work in multiple ways to make sure that you get the money you deserve. All of the factors that go into determining how much your case is worth will be extensively researched and documented. When the case enters the negotiation phase, we will make each point clear to the insurance company. By showing an actual monetary cost for each type of damage, we make it much harder for the insurance company to shortchange you.
In the event that the insurance company is not willing to offer a fair settlement, we are able and willing to take your case to court.
