One of the main questions a lot of people have when they have any injury case is what is my case worth?
This question can be important because sometimes the value of a case can be outweighed by the cost of bringing the case.
When the cost is outweighing the value of the case, it’s not going to be in the best interest of the client to bring that case.
SO WILL LAWYER TELL ME WHAT IS MY CASE WORTH DURING THE INITIAL MEETING?
The question that many people have on their minds during their initial meeting with their lawyer is will the lawyer tell them how much the case is going to be worth at the end of the case?
Because of the many issues that a case valuation consists of, it will be hard for any attorney to give you an ending valuation of your case.
WHAT ARE SOME OF THE ISSUE PRESENTED THEN?
Before an attorney can give a good assessment of the value of a case there are things that the attorney must know.
For example, what are the medical bills?
Will you need future care?
Have you lost time from work?
Will you be able to work in the future?
What county will the case have to be filed in?
These are but a few of the things that an attorney will have to know before being able to give you a good number as to what your case is worth.
