This is one of the most frequently asked questions by new clients, however significant investigation is required in order to properly assess liability and damages, which will assist in providing an answer. There are many factors involved in determining the value of a given case. For example, a “medical end result” must be reached in personal injury cases before an attorney can even begin to value a case. The “medical end result” is the point in time when a medical professional determines that the injury is fully evaluated, and judgments on the past and future effects of the injury can be made. After the medical end result is reached, attorneys must look at several other factors, including the type of injury, length of treatment, permanency of the injury, length of time of disability, scarring, loss of consortium, and any lost wages due to the injury. Swartz & Swartz, P.C. evaluates all such factors, to ensure that our clients understand the damages portion of their claims.
