How Much Is My Case Worth?

If you have been seriously injured or lost a loved one in an accident, one of the first questions you will ask your attorney is: How much is my case worth? You probably won’t get a straight answer right away, but not because the lawyer does not know what he or she is talking about.

At the New York City personal injury law firm of Tolmage, Peskin, Harris, Falick, we want our clients to understand that it may take awhile for an accurate valuation of a case involving severe injuries. We give them an overview of the analysis we will perform on their behalf.

Questions a reputable attorney must answer to know what your case is worth:

1)     Is there a case? Before determining damages, an attorney must carefully analyze whether the plaintiff even has a claim.

2)     What injuries are involved and what is the patient’s outlook? Severe and permanent damages likely involve higher damages than ones that will fully heal. 

3)     The unique situation of the victim and family. Will the plaintiff’s entire career be impacted by the injuries? Is the plaintiff a young mother who will no longer be able to care for her children?

4)     Who is the defendant? Did the injury occur in a “mom and pop shop” or a global retail giant? It can make a difference in what you actually recover. 

5)     Does the plaintiff want to settle or go to trial with higher risk, but a potentially higher award? While an experienced attorney will give you guidance on whether an offer is too low, it is ultimately the plaintiff/victim’s decision to settle or go to trial.

The experience of your lawyer can be the difference in whether your injury or wrongful death lawsuit succeeds or fails. The New York law firm of Tolmage, Peskin, Harris, Falick has been helping victims and families for nearly 50 years. We have the experience and resources to get your case the best outcome possible.
