#5 Factors to Determine the Value of a Personal Injury Case

Determining the value of your injuries in a personal injury case can be complex. On one hand, you have the tangible factors of calculating a personal injury case along with the intangible factors.

Here are the #5 factors that must be considered when valuing a personal injury case:

  1. Medical Bills Incurred in the Past
  2. Future Medical Treatment
  3. Past, Present & Future Pain & Suffering
  4. Loss of Past Wages
  5. Loss of Future Earning Capacity

The tangible factors include things of certainty such as knowing the cost incurred for medical treatment. It is tangible because the medical provider provides a medical bill and it shows a balance, or if you did not receive a wage as result of missing work because of the injuries sustained.

Intangible factors are calculating past, present and future pain and suffering. You may ask how is this calculated? This is where an experienced trial attorney comes into play. In the closing argument at trial, the attorney presents a persuasive way that a jury should calculate pain and suffering based on trial testimony and evidence. As it turns out, the law does not give you a method of calculating pain & suffering, so it is up to the attorney to do that. It is critical to hire an attorney who already has jury trial experience.
