Determining What Your Case is Worth
Before pursuing your personal injury case, you may be wondering what kind of outcome you can expect. This is a fair question, but a challenging one for attorneys to answer immediately due to the unique nature of each case. Because no two injuries are the same, it is impossible to make predictions based on other cases.
While asking how much your case is worth may seem like the most essential question, a qualified attorney can help you focus on the questions needed to get to that answer. We look at all facets of your injury, from immediate medical bills to anticipated costs down the road, providing clarity around what to expect from your efforts. Here’s how Ward Black Law can help you:
1. Determining Your Case Type: Before we can partner with you, we need to determine which of our attorneys would be the best fit to make that assessment. By selecting from the following case types, we can pair you with a highly experienced lawyer who has the experience and knowledge to guide you in the right direction. Ward Black Law represents clients in the following cases:
- Wrongful death
- Injured on the job
- Car/truck wreck injuries
- Social Security disability
- Veterans disability
- Vaccine injuries
- Drug or product-related injuries
- Mesothelioma and asbestos disease
2. Evaluating The Circumstances: After we understand the basics of your case, we will schedule a meeting to ask further questions and gain a deeper understanding of the circumstances surrounding your injury. These questions might include, but are not limited to:
- Whose fault was your injury?
- Do you have multiple injuries?
- What medical treatment have you received?
- Is there care you still need?
- Have you been out of work for this?
- Do you anticipate being able to work again in the near future?
- Do you require assistance with everyday tasks?
- How has this injury changed your life, as well as the lives of your family members?
Getting these answers helps us thoroughly evaluate your case with a full understanding of your medical, financial, and personal needs.
3. Categorizing Your Needs: Medical bills add up quickly. With statements from your providers, it is easy to see just how much your injury is setting you back. Some damages, however, are more difficult to categorize. We don’t merely look at tangible expenses, we consider the pain and suffering you’ve had to bear, as well as the ways your family has been affected. The most important categories we consider are:
- Medical expenses (Past and future)
- Time out of work (Lost wages)
- Future employment implications
- General pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium (Spouse’s diminished quality of life)
4. Moving Forward With Your Case: After we have a full understanding of your injuries, we are equipped to fight for the compensation you deserve. Regardless of what your case is worth, we’ll analyze the facts to pursue a fair settlement to cover your past, present, and future needs. Get started by contacting us online today.
