How Much Is Your Car Accident Case Worth?
The value of any case is based on how much a jury would likely provide by way of a verdict if the case were to be tried. Insurance companies place value on a case based on how much exposure they believe they and their insured may have. That is, insurance companies usually won’t pay any more to resolve your claim than they believe they are exposed to pay if the case is tried.
Plaintiffs’ lawyers also value cases on the basis of what a jury would likely provide by way of verdict. There are innumerable factors that can motivate a jury to provide a strong verdict. Likeability of the parties, seriousness of the injuries involved, the amount of medical expenses incurred, whether any injuries are permanent, likeability and/or capability of the lawyers, the culpability of the defendant (was the defendant texting, drunk, or a habitual offender?), and many other factors can affect a jury’s verdict.
While you may find “pain and suffering calculators” on the internet, there is no formula or equation that will provide an accurate calculation of what a jury may provide by way of verdict. The best you can achieve is to listen to an attorney that has extensive experience in the area and, in particular, extensive experience in the local area in which the case would be tried if not settled.
