How Much Is My Case Worth? – A Virginia Beach Personal Injury Attorney’s Advice
When I get a call from a person who has just been hurt in a personal injury accident a lot of times they want to know the answer to that question about the value of their case right away. This is understandable. People are worried about how they’re going to pay for the medical bills and deal with their lost wages. I try to be as reassuring as I can that we will help them to get all of those medical bills and lost wages covered to the extent possible. However it’s often hard to know what the value of a case is until all the facts are known including whether there’s going to be any permanent impairment or long term problems like having to change jobs because of an injury.
What I usually tell my clients is there will come a day when I will be able to answer that question for you and we will figure out the value of the case together. Any attorney who attempts to tell a client what their case is worth on Day 1 before they know what’s even wrong with them is not doing them any favors and is not really being honest about the case evaluation.
