If you’ve been injured, you’re likely wondering how you’re going to pay for medical expenses, car repairs or replacement, lost wages, and on and on. A common question for anyone in your position might be, “How much money can I get if I file a lawsuit?”
The truth is that every injury case is unique. There’s no way to assign a specific value to your case, but our Utah injury attorneys can give you an idea of how much your case is worth and ask the insurance company to compensate you for that amount.
Here’s How We Estimate Your Case’s Worth
- How the accident happened.
- What injuries you suffered.
- Your medical expenses.
- Your potential future resulting medical issues.
- Your lost income.
- Any potential future medical costs and lost income.
- How much pain and suffering the accident caused you.
To Get Paid, You Need Proof.
In many cases, we’re able to negotiate with the insurance company out of court and reach a settlement based on the above determining factors. If not, we can file a lawsuit on your behalf, and the value of your claim will be determined by a judge and jury.
In either case, when you make a personal injury claim, it all comes down to proof. We must prove that you were injured and that another individual caused your injuries. We’ll need evidence like medical bills, accident reports, witness statements, and photographs, to name a few.
Basically, to determine the value of your case, providing that evidence and a few other factors like severity of your injuries, whether you’re permanently impaired, and your amount of lost income will be required.
There’s Only One Way to Find Out
As you can see, there’s no straight answer to the question of how much money you can get in a personal injury lawsuit. The only way to know is to contact an experienced law firm to help guide you through the process.
Our firm knows that you may see big settlements get all the media coverage. Dollar amounts in the millions always make the news, and this skews the perception of what lawsuits are worth.
But the media doesn’t cover the types of settlements happening in law firms and courthouses around the country. These settlements and verdicts that are in the tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands change lives every day and make injured victims whole after someone causes them harm.
