Settlements and rewards for an injury case involving neck injuries can range from $9,000 to $1,000,000 or more. However, there are too many variables that can affect your personal injury case to give you an accurate range. Any lawyer will want to know the details of your accident before predicting the value of your case.
The value of a case is practically impossible to determine until you have received treatment. We recommend this for the victim’s well-being, and because it is more efficient to pursue a case after the victim has been treated by a medical professional.
Some lawyers may tell you “Your case is worth no less than $80,000.” A good lawyer should know that this is a dangerous statement to make. There is no sure-fire way to determine what your case estimate will be. There are important variables that will affect the value of your case that cannot be determined until the victim has fully recovered. Their variables are listed below.
- Was there a pre-existing condition?
- What treatment was required?
- Is the injury permanent or will it heal?
- What is the total of the victim’s medical bills?
- Does the victim have health insurance?
- Is there strong evidence that the other party was at fault?
