What is My Injury Case Worth in Clermont, Inverness or Tavares?
Central Florida law firm knows from experience
The most complex part of any personal injury lawsuit is arriving at a sum of money, through negotiation or court verdict, that fully and fairly compensates the victim. In this area of the practice, there is no substitute for experience. Our attorneys have more than 25 years of combined experience in personal injury law. We have obtained millions of dollars in compensation for seriously injured Floridians. We work closely with our clients to explain the basis for our evaluation of the case and lay out in full detail the facts and circumstances that support our proposed appeal for damages. Of course, the case is yours and you get to make the final decisions about litigation strategy. But when you retain our firm, you can make those decisions based on an abundance of pertinent information offered to advance your best interests.
Our lawyers know the “market” for personal injury awards
Achieving an optimum damage award requires knowledge of the market for personal injury claims. While it may seem odd, or even offensive, to think in terms of a market for injury settlements, you must understand that your claim is an asset of uncertain value and market forces will apply pressure on that claim, driving its value up or down. How high or how low the value of your claim goes depends greatly on your attorney’s knowledge of the market, based on past settlements and jury verdicts for similar cases. That is not common knowledge; most cases settle out of court with restrictions on revealing the terms. Thus, inexperienced attorneys are often “flying blind,” because they don’t have a firm basis on which to estimate your case’s true worth. Represented by a novice, your claim might not be worth the cost of filing.
Evaluating your claim at the outset of negotiations
Before our attorneys file a claim, we do a thorough assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of your case. Factors that raise the value of your case include:
- Severity of your injuries
- Permanence of your injuries
- The extent to which your injuries interfere with your career
- The extent to which your injuries rob you of enjoyment of life
- Certainty of the defendant’s liability
- The extent to which you appear sympathetic to a jury
- The extent to which the defendant is unsympathetic to a jury
Because no two injury cases are the same, comparing and contrasting similar cases can be useful, but also deceptive. We must consider the totality of the circumstances. For example, a ballerina who loses a leg in a car accident arguably suffers more than a lawyer who sustains the exact same injury. We also must adjust our expectations if we’re going to have difficulty determining liability. Our goal is always to assemble sufficient evidence to make a claim for the highest recovery amount possible and to work tirelessly to achieve that end.
