How do I determine the value of my motorcycle accident claim?
People often ask me what the value of their case is. What is the value of the injury? The answer is complicated. There are many factors that go into play. One factor is the extent of the injury, let’s say it’s a broken wrist. It takes a while for that broken wrist to heal. We may not know for a year whether or not there are permanent issues relevant to that broken wrist, and that could add value to the case. It could be after a year that you’ve reached maximum improvement in terms of physical therapy and rehabilitation, but the wrist has what they call range of motion issues. If you move it too far to the left or right it begins to hurt; that’s important. That adds value to the case. Another issue that comes up is liability, pointing a finger at who caused the accident. That’s important; it’s not always clear cut. Sometimes you’ll have a defendant, the one that you’re pointing a finger at as causing the accident, point the finger right back and say that you caused the accident. These are issues that have to be resolved and ironed out that all go into determining the value of the case.
