Curious to know what your car wreck case is worth? While there is no set answer, this video will help you understand the factors that insurance companies and juries look at to determine the value of a case.
The lawyers at Hutchison & Stoy are always happy to answer questions that clients or potential clients ask us about their personal injury case. One of the most common questions that people ask is “what is my car wreck case worth?”
This very simple question cannot be answered easily.
The truth of the matter is that no attorney can give you the exact dollar value of what your car accident is worth. What your car accident case is worth will depend on a number of different factors and the facts of your case.
It is true that that a lot of cases settle outside of court. But it is important for you to always anticipate that your case will go to trial. If you do not anticipate that your case will go to trial you could find yourself in a situation where you are not prepared to present your case in court if the insurance company will not offer you a fair amount of compensation for your personal injury case.
At Hutchison & Stoy, we work diligently for our clients.
We will fight for the best outcome for you.
Ultimately, your car accident case is worth what a jury says it is worth assuming your case goes to trial. If your case does not go to trial your car accident case is worth what an insurance company (or other defendant) is willing to offer you.
When insurance companies are attempting to determine the value of a car accident case they consider a number of different factors. One of the most important factors is paid or owed medical bills. The insurance company will evaluate all of the plaintiff’s medical expenses. This follows the basic premise that the more severe the injury that the plaintiff suffers the more compensation an insurance company will be willing to offer the plaintiff.
The rest of the factors that insurance companies consider are detailed in this video.
