How much is my injury case worth? How long will it take?

x rayIf a lawyer tells you the value of a case in the first couple of weeks following an injury, be wary. Every case is different, and there are many things that must first be taken into account. The parameters surrounding the case, the details revealed in an investigation, and other factors must be brought to light and carefully analyzed before that value can be estimated.

Other factors are involved, such as the county in which the injury occurred. The other thing that will likely determine the value of the case is who is handling the case, for both the plaintiff and the defendant.

The time frame for a case also varies. I try to get trial dates as soon as I can on my cases, because normally that’s the only time that the insurance companies representing the negligent driver, healthcare providers or hospitals are going to pay.
