Do I need a lawyer to help determine the value of my car accident case?
Yes. Determining the value of a personal injury claim is a very complex task. There is no such thing as an injury calculator or formula that can accurately determine the value of your case. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you with expert advice on the value of compensatory damages, such as medicial bills, lost wages and pain and suffering, and whether punitive damages, which are meant to punish the wrongdoer, apply to your claim. An experienced personal injury attorney who is also a board certified civil trial specialist can advise you on the burden of proving past and future medical bills, past and future loss of earning capacity (lost wages) and past and future pain, suffering, disability and disfigurement. This expert advice will help you maximize your settlement or trial verdict.
