Sometimes the aftermath of an injury accident can be worse than the accident itself. You are suddenly struck with negative situations directly brought about by your accident and injuries.
Your injuries may have you staring through a lonely hospital window, wondering when you can get back to your life. You could be unable to work due to your injuries, which means your financial stability is taking a hit.
There are many other financial and non-financial damages your injury accident will bring to your life, and you are likely wondering how much your personal injury claim is worth.
Calculating Your Personal Injury Claim’s Value
No one can tell you exactly how much your claim is worth without first reviewing your case and your damages, but a good place for you to start calculating your claim’s value is your financial losses. You can gather your medical bills and other treatment-related expenses and add them together.
Next, calculate how much income you’re missing out on and how much you will probably be missing out on in the future. Add to the list any other financial costs associated with your injury and accident.
Then, you need to document your non-economic losses, such as pain, suffering, mental trauma, lost life enjoyment, permanent injury, scarring, disfigurement, and other negative effects. You then need to figure out how much you believe your suffering is worth, which isn’t an easy thing to calculate.
A lawyer can assist you in determining the worth of your personal injury claim so don’t hesitate to reach out.
