Your Fairfax personal injury attorney is not a magician, nor are they psychic. Well, some may claim to be, and hey, they may moonlight as a performer at kids' birthday parties - we all have hobbies. But I'm talking about when it comes to negotiating your personal injury claim settlement - we cannot perform magic on your case.

There's no trickery to persuade an insurance company or jury to grant you a settlement. There's also no way to predict a settlement amount - we can't predict the future no matter how much we'd like to believe we can.

That being said, you should never trust an attorney who tells you they'll absolutely win your claim or gives a guaranteed settlement amount. Even if you have a textbook-perfect personal injury claim where you were 100% not at fault, had serious injuries and damages, and your documented evidence is amazing, there's no way to guarantee a favorable settlement until the claim is closed.

There are many methods that respectable Fairfax personal injury attorneys do use to help estimate the value of a personal injury claim in Virginia. We can draw upon past case results from claims similar to yours, as well as assessing the tangible (economic) damages you've incurred.

Remember that this is just an estimate, and if a lawyer tells you they guarantee you'll recover a certain amount, they're just using that as a sales pitch to get you to hire them. The final say lies with the insurance company, judge or jury, not your attorney.

Knowing what to look for in a Fairfax personal injury attorney is important to settling your case comfortably and for the best amount possible.
