One of the most common questions that a potential client will ask a personal injury lawyer is, “what is my case worth?”. Unfortunately, the answer to this question is not as simple as one might think. A lawyer cannot accurately predict how much a case might be worth without much information and thorough research. Every case is unique, and the value of each claim needs to be determined on a case-by-case basis.
A case’s value is determined by analyzing a variety of different factors. One sign that should make you ask questions is if a lawyer gives potential clients case evaluations with ball-park figures without taking the time to review their case thoroughly.
Although no legal team can answer the specific question “what is my case worth?” without a thorough review of a lot of information, the team at Graves McLain can help by determining what damages you are entitled to recover under Oklahoma law and to ensure that each injured person is fully compensated under the circumstances of their case.
In many cases, the amount of money that can be obtained in a personal injury claim is dependent on several factors, including:
- The Unique Details of the Accident
- The Severity and Permanency of the Injuries Sustained
- Insurance Coverage
The Oklahoma Uniform Jury Instructions precisely explain what categories of damages an injured person is entitled to recover. The most common damage categories include medical expenses, lost wages, physical pain or suffering, mental pain or suffering, permanent or temporary impairments, and disfigurement.
It is essential to hire an experienced personal injury attorney early on to ensure the proper evidence is collected and maintained to maximize the value of your personal injury case.
