If you suffer injuries through no fault of your own, you deserve compensation that will “make you whole.” Each case is different. Facts vary. However, if our firm takes on your case, we will assess the value of your case by looking at the following factors:
An attorney from Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard P.C., can gather medical records, employment records and other evidence to establish these damages. We can also consult with medical experts, economists and others to assess the full extent of past and future losses in your case.
There are two other factors you need to consider when assessing the value of your case:
While you could try to pursue a claim against the at-fault party for the excess, most people don’t have that much money. This means you might not be able to collect it at all, or you might have to go through steps such as garnishing the at-fault party’s wages or placing liens on his or her property. These steps can be challenging. This is why settlements tend to be for an amount equal to the at-fault party’s policy limits.
Getting sufficient compensation for your injury is essential so you can move on with your life and have the money you need to provide your medical care and pay your other expenses. You don’t want to accept less than you deserve, which means you need to have a clear idea of what your case is worth.
