    If you or a loved one has been injured because of another party, you are probably busy dealing with things like medical treatment, medical bills, property damage, and time out of work.  You might even be thinking about speaking to a personal injury lawyer about a personal injury lawsuit.

    Victims often want to know how much their potential personal injury claim is worth.

    How much is your personal injury claim worth?

    How Much Is My Personal Injury Claim Worth?

    We understand that a victim wants to know the answer to this question – you may be facing numerous medical expenses, lost wages, and emotional distress.  All of your bills can add up fast and the person who caused your injury should be responsible for paying.

    Unfortunately, putting an exact value on a personal injury claim is not so simple.  There are many factors that will affect how much money you will ultimately receive. An experienced personal injury law firm should be able to give you an estimate on the value of your claim.

    Important Factors to Consider

    Some factors that an experienced personal injury attorney will take into consideration are:

    • Medical expenses
    • Monetary value of your property damage
    • Lost earnings
    • Loss of earning potential for the future
    • Estimated future medical expenses
    • Pain and suffering
    • Economic damages
    • Loss of consortium
    • Compensatory damages
    • Punitive damages
    • Comparative negligence – In Nevada, the amount of your award is reduced by your percentage of fault. If your fault is greater than 50%, you cannot win any damages.

    Seek Legal Advice First

    If you’ve been injured in an accident, it’s important to work with an experienced personal injury attorney to protect your rights.  If you have been injured by the reckless or negligent actions of another, the law protects you.  However, only an attorney who is experienced in personal injury law will be able to get you the justice that you deserve.

    It’s important to speak with an attorney before you speak with any insurance companies.  If they try to contact you, let them know you have an attorney or are going to retain one, and provide them with your personal injury lawyer’s contact information.

    The other side’s insurance company will often try to get you to settle your case for a low amount that will not fully compensate you for your personal injury damages. Never sign, accept, or deposit anything from the other party or their insurance company without consulting your personal injury lawyer first.
