What Factors Decide The Value Of My Maryland Personal Injury Claim?
Auto accident, personal injury and wrongful death claims are all unique from one another. Meaning, there can be 2 accidents with almost identical events leading up to the accident and almost identical injuries but each case can be worth vastly different amounts. There are numerous factors that go into establishing who is liable in a personal injury claim as well as what the claim os worth. These factors are:
- Extent of impact, property damage and injuries
- Initial injury and treatment
- Future and follow-up treatment
- Impact on claimant and their lifestyle
- Economic and financial losses
- Cause of accident
These are just some of the factors that can determine the total value of your claim.
What To Look For In A Personal Injury Lawyer
When deciding to retain an attorney there are certain attributes you should look for that may make you more comfortable in terms of retaining that particular lawyer. The first thing you should focus on is experience. The more experienced an attorney is at handling claims similar to yours the better off you will be. Another attribute is whether or not they focus their practice on personal injury law or are they a general practice firm. Their litigation experience and trial record is something else to consider. While most accident and injury claims end in a settlement you need an attorney who is willing to go to trial if necessary. You should also consider their history of obtaining favorable settlements and verdicts for their clients.
