The law allows recovery of compensation in personal injury claims for medical expenses, lost wages, lost earning capacity, pain, disability, loss of enjoyment of life, and other damages that will depend on the specific facts of your case. The “value” of any claim is determined based on a forecast of what a jury would award in the case if it were to proceed to trial. There is no magic formula to determine the value of a personal injury case and the specific facts of each case result in highly variable outcomes. Some of the factors that should be considered in forecasting what a jury may award include the following:
- What is the nature of the injury?
- How does it impact the person’s ability to work or enjoy life with friends and family?
- How much does the injury hurt?
- How often does it hurt?
- Is the injury permanent or temporary?
- Is there any further medical treatment that can improve the pain or limit the pain?
Every case is different and the specific compensation awarded will depend on a variety of factors that must be looked at by an experienced personal injury lawyer.
