How is the value of my claim determined?
The value of your claim is based upon a variety of factors including liability, damages and causation. In evaluating a claim, it first has to be proven that the other party was at fault for the accident. The extent of injury is an equally important factor and includes the amount of past and future medical bills, the amount of past and future lost wages, and the impact the injuries have had on your life. Lastly, it must be proven that your injury was caused by the other party’s negligence.
