What’s Your Case Worth?

by Staff Blogger | January 15th, 2016

The most common question an accident victim will ask is how much his or her case is worth. The answer depends on a number of factors, all of which must be considered both independently and collectively before any estimation can be given. That figure is what we believe the insurance company is liable for, and it will serve as our target for compensation.

Some of the factors we consider when estimating the value of a case are how the accident occurred, what injuries were sustained, current and future medical expenses, lost income, and future loss of income. Failing to consider even one of these factors could drastically affect your compensation, which is why you should never deal with the insurance company alone.

Another factor that will determine your case’s worth is you. Throughout the course of your lawsuit, the insurance company may present to us a number of offers. Each time, we’ll advise you to whether or not you should take it. We represent you, so it’s ultimately your decision. However, in our experience, settling too soon can leave thousands of dollars on the table—money you’ll need to fully recover. To get maximum compensation for your injuries, you’ll need to trust your attorney. At Ponce Law, we’re only successful if you’re successful, so you can rest assured we have your best interests at heart.
