When you are injured as a result of someone else’s wrongful conduct, you have the right to file a personal injury claim so that you can be compensated for your damages. While no amount of money can make up for the emotional and physical trauma, it can help you pay for the expenses and losses you incurred because of the injury.
It is important to properly value your case. For example, if you have suffered a permanent injury your recovery will need to account for future medical costs. Or, if you will be unable to return to work, or be unable to perform the work you used to, then the value of your claim must account for future lost wages.
Investigate the Value of Your Case
After you hire Miller Lathrop to represent you in your personal injury claim, we will use our skills and extensive resources to investigate the full value of your case.
Be suspicious if a law firm or insurance company tells you how much your case may be worth right away. Without fully investigating future medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses, you cannot know the true and full value of your case.
There are many factors that must be considered in the valuation of your personal injury case, including: the extent of your injuries, medical costs, hospital stays, past and future surgeries, scarring or permanent injury, future medical costs, were you or are you unable to work, who was at fault, and the evidence of the accident.
We will review the unique details of your personal injury claim and take the time to fully investigate your case. During the course of our investigation we will:
- Gather evidence about the circumstances of the accident.
- Gather evidence on the wrongful conduct of the party at fault for your injuries.
- Collect all medical records, bills, and other evidence pertaining to the extent of your injuries.
- Gather other necessary evidence, including evidence to demonstrate future expenses, witness testimony, and hiring expert witnesses when necessary.
