Is My Personal Injury Claim Worth 3 Times The Cost of My Medical Bills?

Is My Personal Injury Claim Worth 3 Times The Cost of My Medical Bills?

A common question we hear from clients who want to know what the value of their claim is, is whether their claim is worth three times their medical bills. This is a common belief that we have heard from clients, but there really is no such thing as a special formula or calculator for determining the value of a claim. And to state that a claim is worth three times the medical bills really ignores a lot of the different factors that go into determining claim value. There’s so many different factors that include: the venue where the case might be pending, whether there’s any aggravating facts associated with the defendant’s conduct, what was the nature of the treatment, what’s the prognosis for the injuries. For example: has the injured party recovered fully, are they going to need ongoing medical care, are there future medical bills in order, did they miss any work, what are their lost wages, are there future lost wages, is there any permanent disfigurement or scarring? Because of all the different factors that go into evaluating a claim and determining what it’s worth, it would be impossible to create a universal rule that says “all personal injury claims are worth three times their medical bills.” In our law firm, we don’t use a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach and we don’t put claims into a box. We look at every case independently and evaluate it and determine what the value of the claim is based on all the relevant factors.

How Accurate Are Personal Injury Settlement Calculators?

How Accurate Are Personal Injury Settlement Calculators?

Lately we’ve heard some of our clients ask us if personal injury settlement calculators give an accurate appraisal of the value of the claim. The short answer is no. Personal injury settlement calculators do not work. Insurance companies don’t use calculators, we don’t use calculators, and if your case goes to trial there isn’t going to be a calculator in the jury. There are a lot of factors that go into determining the value of the claim. If you do use a personal injury settlement calculator online, don’t trust it.

How Long Will My Case Take?

How Long Will My Case Take?

When we get hired, clients will always ask us, “how long is this going to take?” And what I always tell people, “it’s going to take as long as it takes for the other side to offer you a fair value on the case. Until then, we’re going to keep on marching towards the courtroom, and marching towards a trial.” Some cases resolve in a matter of months, some take a year, some take two years or more. It really depends on the circumstances of the case. At the end of the day, there’s nothing that can require another party to settle a case. Settlements are voluntary. It’s when two sides come together and settle a dispute. If one side doesn’t want to settle, you can’t make them do it. The way that you make them pay you money is by taking them to court, going to trial, and getting a judgement against them. Then they have to pay.

Police Body Cam Cases

Police Body Cam Cases

Every police department is different on what types of cameras they might require, whether it’s body cam, some police officers have cameras on their tasers that are activated when they deploy them. Anytime we’ve got somebody alleging that the police did something wrong, it’s important that there be some type of video evidence. If there isn’t video evidence, then we’re generally looking for an independent witness who can verify what happened. Because a lot of times what we find are the statements between the person who is having the encounter with police differs greatly from what the police say happened. Now, sometimes the police are telling the truth, and the person that had the encounter, they had force used against them, they were arrested, maybe they were in the wrong, maybe they’re lying about what happened, maybe they just have a different memory of what happened. But unfortunately, sometimes the police don’t tell the truth. Maybe sometimes they shade the truth and try to put a spin on facts. And so that’s why it’s important to try to find any kind of video evidence you can. Of course with cell phones now and what we find a lot of are bystanders recording encounters with cellphones, and that can be helpful as well.
