Just because you have been injured in an accident doesn’t necessarily mean that you have a successful personal injury claim. There are 3 basic requirements for a Personal Injury lawsuit:
1. The responsible party was careless (negligent)
2. The negligence caused the personal injury
3. The injury resulted in harm (compensatory damages)
Determining the worth of your personal injury claim will depend on the severity of your injuries, the details of the case, insurance limits and the identity of the defendant. A case’s worth is based on six areas, assuming that the liability issue is straightforward. These areas include:
- Past medical bills
- Future medical bills
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Permanent Injury
