How do I determine the value of a car accident claim?


It’s impossible to know the value of a car accident claim in the very beginning, because you don’t know the extent of your injuries. If any lawyer tells you otherwise, they’re simply not being honest with you.

It takes time to understand the damages in a case, because it takes time to see how physical injuries heal or don’t heal. If they heal up over a period of time and the injured person is made whole, that’s a good time to sit down and say, “Okay, now we can look at what your injuries are and place a value on this particular claim.” Then, your attorney can reach a settlement or if necessary, go to trial.

Sometimes injuries don’t heal. You need to make sure you’ve got a lawyer who can handle that possibility and know when it’s appropriate to move forward with a lawsuit instead of agreeing to  a low-ball settlement.

You don’t want to settle too early, because if the client ends up having ongoing injuries, those must be taken into consideration in the settlement and backed up by an expert opinion.
