A common question that we get from our clients is what is their personal injury case worth. That's a very complicated question. It depends on a variety of factors. Oftentimes, early on in a case, the answer to that question will not be known.
For example, we need to look at and see what are the facts of liability. Who was at fault? Is it clear that they were at fault? Was the injured person partially to blame for their injuries?
What were the medical bills? What were the diagnoses? Did they need a surgery? Did the injury, maybe, preexist, and this accident isn't what actually caused it?
Those are all things that need to be analyzed. If an attorney can tell you what your case is worth, especially early on in the process, they're not being honest with you, because there are so many factors that have to be taken into account.
