How Much Is My Personal Injury Claim Worth?
The value of a personal injury claim depends on a number of things: the nature and severity of the injury, the amount of medical bills, length of treatment, permanent impairment, loss of earnings, and the length, nature, and severity of pain and suffering. Other factors that can affect the value of a claim include preexisting medical conditions, comparative fault, and insurance policy limits. Also, initial injuries you receive can worsen or your doctor can find problems related to the accident much later. An overarching factor in determining value is finding all the potential sources of compensation. At Mazzeo Law, we look at all avenues to get you compensated for your injuries and other damages. We also look for all available and applicable insurance policies and assets that can cover your injuries. Bear in mind, each personal injury case is unique because of the many factors involved. The value of a case cannot be accurately predicted until all the evidence that affects your claim has been gathered. Most important, the value of your claim is affected by the reputation and skill of your attorney. Having an attorney with the reputation to taking a case to trial and winning helps settle cases early, so you don’t have to wait for your compensation. We discuss and advise of all factors affecting the value of your claim and give you an idea as to a reasonable range. We identify the responsible parties and locate the applicable insurance coverage and assets from which the claim can be paid. Mazzeo Law then takes the necessary legal steps to recover the full and fair value of your claim.
