When our clients first come to us, one of the questions they ask on the very onset is how much their case is worth. You can get a gauge, as an attorney, when you review the bills, and you review the records, and you understand all the suffering and everything that’s happened up to this point, but even with that gauge, it’s really hard to say. There are a lot of factors that come into play.
One of the factors that you don’t necessarily have a great hold on at the beginning is how you will be in the future. Not everyone heals the same. Not everyone feels the same a year after the accident. It’s important to understand the individual, and it’s important to let it play out a little and see how the individual is doing. Your attorney will to speak to experts who examine you, how you’re doing thus far, and really get a good sense of how you’re going to be down the road. You are entitled to compensation for that, and quite often large amounts of money, depending on what your injuries are. You don’t want to sell yourself short. The answer is not necessarily an exact number, but in time, the picture becomes a lot clearer in terms of what that range is of what you should get.
As an attorney, we want to make sure you get to the top of that range. We want to make sure you get compensation we feel is very fair for your client. Your attorney is your guardian of the case. They’re there to make sure that you’re taking care of after your life has been up heaved. We can’t bring back your health as your attorney, but we can make sure that you’re compensated fairly for what you’re undergoing and what we expect you to undergo in the future.
