What Is My Personal Injury Case Worth?

Each person’s case is different. ¬†We have handled personal injury cases where the damages amounted to tens of millions of dollars. ¬†We have also¬†seen cases where the damages are very small. ¬†It just depends on the individual case. ¬†If you are injured by the negligence (fault) of another, you can typically recover for the following types of damages:

  • Physical pain and mental anguish sustained in the past;
  • Physical pain and mental anguish that, in reasonable probability, you will sustain in the future;
  • Loss of earning capacity sustained in the past;
  • Loss of earning capacity that, in reasonable probability, you will sustain in the future;
  • Disfigurement sustained in the past;
  • Disfigurement that, in reasonable probability, you will sustain in the future;
  • Physical impairment sustained in the past;
  • Physical impairment that, in reasonable probability, you will sustain in the future;
  • Medical care expenses in the past; and,
  • Medical care expenses that, in reasonable probability, you will incur in the future.
