Determining the value of a case is one of the harder questions for a plaintiff lawyer to answer. There are many factors that are considered, including evidence of liability, witness statements and whether there are discrepancies in testimony, the severity of your injuries, insurance limits, and identity of the defendant. Compensation may include payment of medical bills, pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of ability to enjoy life, lost wages, and diminished earning capacity.
