Determining the Value of a Personal Injury Claim

Every personal injury claim is unique. This means that it’s unlikely for any two claims to be valued at the same amount. It’s possible, however, that your claim could be valued in a similar manner to a case where the victim was in a similar situation.

Dealing with insurance adjusters can be challenging. If possible, let your attorney handle those conversations. You don’t want anything to jeopardize your compensation.

When your lawyer does reach out to fight on your behalf for monetary recovery, they will look to recover economic and noneconomic losses. We’ll discuss the differences between the two categories below.

Economic Losses

Economic losses are, in most instances, calculable. To total up what you’re owed, our lawyers will collect hospital bills, lost wages statements, medical service bills, and more to calculate the actual dollar amount you’ve lost.

Depending on the situation, we may also be able to take your future medical bills and lost income into consideration. It’s dependent on the severity of your injuries and how long they will take to heal, in addition to what care your doctor says you will need in the future.

Economic losses are hard for opposing parties to argue against, especially when hospital bills and employment statements clearly outline what is owed and what has been lost. Calculating future expenses is more challenging, but your lawyer will work to make the most accurate predictions possible so you can continue to afford treatment.

Noneconomic Losses

Noneconomic losses are slightly more challenging to calculate, as they’re based on factors that aren’t numerical in any real sense. Instead, noneconomic losses for most personal injury claims are based on pain and suffering.

The more severe your injuries are and the worse you’ve been impacted, especially long term, you have the hold the negligent party accountable for your pain and suffering.

In addition to taking your pain and suffering into consideration, our lawyers will also look at what other claims have resolved in the past. This will give us a better idea of what’s been deemed reasonable in similar situations.
