What is Personal Injury, and how much is a Personal Injury claim worth?
Personal injury is any physical or mental injury suffered by an individual that is the result of another party’s negligence or wrongful act. For example, it could be an accident, a dog bite, a dangerous condition, a wrongful death, etc... There are so many things to consider when determining how much a personal injury claim is worth, and it can be tough to set a dollar amount on injuries you suffer in an accident. You may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, time lost from work, medical costs for ongoing injuries, pain and suffering, and so on. A jury or a judge has wide lattitude in determining these damages and the compensation is based on an individual situation. However, an attorney may be able to help estimate the value of your claim based on similar cases that have been decided in the past.
