One of the main concerns after an accident is how the injured will recover from the incident. Every accident or injury is uniquely distinct, which makes it impossible to accurately predict the value of your case. When calculating the maximum damages of your personal injury claim, several determining factors will directly impact how much compensation you are entitled to. These key factors include, but are not limited to:

  • Damages – The extent and severity of your injuries will be taken into consideration, including medical bills, ongoing or future treatment, loss of work or wages, and property damages. The damages also include compensation for your physical and emotional pain and suffering.
  • Punitive damages – These damages are awarded very rarely and are meant to punish the defendant for his or her outrageous actions.
  • Liability – Identifying the at-fault party is essential. If the court finds you are partially responsible, your claim will be reduced.
  • Defendant’s assets – If the responsible party cannot afford to pay, even after the courts sell their assets or garnish their wages, you must accept a lower settlement than what you may deserve.

As you can imagine, there is no way to guarantee the outcome of your case, and this becomes even more unpredictable when your case goes to trial. Neither party can be sure of their standing, even if the case seems fairly straightforward and concise. This is why it is vital you waste no time in aligning yourself with a legal team who won’t quit.
