This is a question we frequently get, often in the first phone call from someone recently injured in an accident. There is an answer to this question, but it’s not something that can be determined without some analysis.
When we talk about what a Sacramento car accident injury case is “worth” we are either talking about what an insurance company will pay to settle that case or what a jury would award a verdict after a trial. That involves an investigation into many things including how the accident occurred and who is at fault, what injuries and medical treatment were involved, the cost of the treatment, what long-term disability may have been suffered and whether there is a wage loss.
Then, pain and suffering have to be factored in. This often is the most important part of the analysis and includes the physical pain and discomfort suffered as well as any mental distress.
This is an analysis that we at Curtis Legal Group do every day and have been doing for more than 40 years. In order to do it right, we take the time to gather all the necessary information, so that the opinion we arrive at is accurate. Our experience in handling personal injury cases is a big part of our analysis. We don’t use a formula like some law firms that simply multiply the medical expenses by an arbitrary number to arrive at a value.
We offer a free attorney consultation to someone involved in an accident. During that consultation, we can start collecting the necessary information and answer any questions. If you have been in an accident, we would be happy to talk to you. Take advantage of our resources and experience. Give us a call or contact us today.
