What is My Injury Case Worth?

Find out how much you stand to possibly recover in damages.

If you are wrongfully injured in an accident and are considering filing a personal injury claim or lawsuit, you are probably wondering how much compensation is needed to truly cover the financial losses. You might also be wondering what your chances are of actually obtaining that amount. When you enter claims or litigation process, the dollar amounts associated with your case can become very confusing and overwhelming. My name is Patricia M. Davis, and I am an experienced Houston attorney who can help you determine exactly how much your injury case is worth and then fight aggressively on your behalf to help you obtain that amount from the negligent party that is responsible for the accident. This will require adequately proving that true extent and costs of your injury. Because I have decades of experience practicing law, I have learned the most effective strategies for helping my clients pursue the highest levels of payment.

What determines how much my case is worth?

There are various factors that must be considered when determining how much compensation you could be eligible for. You will need to consider your medical costs, which can include costs for everything from emergency room care to surgery and rehabilitation that occur later down the line. You will have to include both current and future medical expenses. Certain catastrophic injuries, such as spinal cord injuries and brain injuries, can lead cause the victim to require long-term medical care.

Loss of income is another major factor that should be reviewed. You might have had to spend a limited amount of time (such as weeks or months) away from your job in order to recover from your injury, leading to a partial or complete loss of the wages you would have received had you not been injured. In some personal injury cases, victims can end up receiving permanent disabilities that force them to become unemployed or to completely switch occupations. Both of these outcomes can have a major impact on them victim's current and future income. In wrongful death cases in which family members seek compensation after the death of a loved one in an accident, certain types of emotional losses can also be included in the damages, such as loss of companionship of a parent or spouse.

The forms of compensation mentioned above are just a few of the many types of "compensatory" damages that can be awarded to a victim by a court. There is also a possibility of obtaining "punitive" damages, or payment that is ordered by the court for the purpose of punishing the defendant rather than simply reimbursing the victim for his or her financial losses.

Helping You Prove the Value of Your Case

Once you have determined the true value of your case, the next step is to prove that value so you can receive the full amount of payment to which you are entitled. When you work with my law firm, I can help you obtain all the documentation you need to help improve your chances of winning your case. This might include medical records, medical bills, proof of your employment and proof of the amount of wages you typically received before your accident occurred. Expert testimony, such as testimony from medical specialists, can also play a major benefit in proving how much economic loss your injury has caused you.

Failing to obtain medical care after your accident or failing to do so in a timely manner could end up reducing or eliminating the damages you are able to receive. Furthermore, the other party in your case might try to challenge your right to compensation by stating that you are partially or fully at fault for your injuries.

Make sure that you fully understand how much you should be claiming and fighting for you in your personal injury case. Contact me today so I can help provide you with aggressive legal representation in your personal injury claim or lawsuit!
