Finding Out How Much Your Accident Case is Worth?
Did You Cause The Accident?
To determine what your accident case is worth, our lawyers first determine who was at fault. As long as you are less than 50% at fault, you have a case. It can sometimes be hard to tell who was at fault after an accident, and police reports can be wrong. If you believe you have been wrongfully blamed for an accident, you might still have a case. Our lawyers conduct independent investigations of our clients’ accidents. An independent investigation could result in uncovering important new facts about your case.
Who Can Be Sued For Your Crash?
Who caused your crash matters in determining how much money you can get after a crash. When your vehicle is struck by a semi-truck, it is likely that the driver of the vehicle is working for a large trucking company or corporation. When this is the case, there may be a lot of insurance money available to you in a settlement. If your vehicle was struck by a teenager without insurance, you will probably only be able to recover a small amount of money.
Did You Contact a Lawyer?
After a crash, contacting a lawyer can be the difference between a multi-million-dollar settlement and no settlement at all. The goal of the insurance company of the at fault driver is to pay as little as possible for a crash. If the insurance company of the other driver can blame you for a crash, they often will. By hiring a lawyer, you will have someone looking out for your best interests. The quality of your lawyer is often one of the most important factors in how much your case is worth.
For all serious crashes, we hire experts to strengthen our clients’ cases. We hire medical experts to testify regarding medical procedures and expenses, estimated future medical expenses, and pain and suffering. And in cases where the level of liability of the other driver needs to be proven, we hire accident reconstruction specialists who recreate the accident and provide visual evidence.

Did the Crash Cause Injuries or Other Damages?
The amount of money you recover after a crash also involves an evaluation of your injuries. The information about your injuries usually comes from your doctor in a medical report in which he or she comments on your injuries. Doctors usually wait a period of time after a crash to issue a final medical report. This is because the effects of a serious injury often are not fully known at first.
How Will The Crash Effect Your Life?
The effects your injury has on your life also play an important role in determining how much money you will get. For example, a broken finger to most people is not a severe injury. However, if you happen to be a concert pianist, a broken finger can be a terrible loss. Thus, it’s important that we know a lot about you and how your injuries have impacted your life.
How Will Your Crash Effect Your Family?
When accidents happen, their impact is often felt by the victims family. Sometimes the victim is no longer able to work or is physically unable to do activities with their children or spouse. When our attorneys work to determine how much money your case is worth, we take the effects of the crash on your family into account.
Where Did the Accident Happen?
For many accidents, there are multiple states where a victim can file their lawsuit. This is especially common when commercial vehicles are involvled. Commercial vehicle crashes may involve many companies from different states. For example, the truck driver could be from Michigan; the trucking company could be based in Texas; the semi truck could be hauling products for a New York company; and the victim could be from California. Because of this complexity and the differences in state laws, it takes an experienced attorney to know which state to choose when filing your accident lawsuit.
