You want to know if you’re going to get justice, and how much you’ll be awarded in your case. There are a lot of factors that go into to determining the value of your case. It depends on the severity of your injuries, the details of the case, insurance limits and the identity of the defendant. A case’s worth is based on five areas, assuming that the liability issue is straightforward. These areas include:
• Past medical bills
• Future medical bills
• Lost wages
• Loss of earning capacity
• Pain and suffering
Although the insurance companies put a ‘bean counter’ equation in place, the truth is there’s no perfect way of determining a case’s value in advance; it’s based on the evidence of the case and what we can prove. Once The Team at Stanley Law have researched, gathered, evaluated and examined all medical records and statements, and have an idea as to whether the client’s physical and mental state have improved or worsened from the date of injury, we can get a better idea.
The following factors are considered when determining the amount of compensation owed for your injuries:
the severity of your injuries
the details of your accident and your degree of fault
your employment history and your ability to work
your life expectancy
even the manner in which you get medical treatment,
your lifestyle, and your legal history are considered.
Helping you get what you deserve based on all of the above factors is what we’re committed to.
