How Much Is My Case Worth?
During an initial consultation, we’re often asked, “How much is my case worth?”
Each and every case is considered on its merit, first and foremost.
Is your case supported by law? Do the facts of a case support a claim of liability? What, if any percentage of responsibility does the injured party hold? Is there more than one responsible party?
In cases of serious personal injury, you are entitled to compensation for past and future medical bills, physical therapy, loss of wages, and in some cases, additional money for pain and suffering.
Workers’ Compensation and Third Party Liability
Injuries falling under Workers’ Compensation, such as construction accidents, may be able to recover additional money beyond the limits of their Workers’ Comp benefits if they have a Third Party liability claim, such as against a general contractor who holds ultimate responsibility for safety on the job site, as well as the costs of retraining for other employment. Workers’ compensation is different than personal injury, and we are often asked, “How much is my workers’ compensation case worth?”
Regardless of your situation, a great deal of work and investigation goes into determining the reasonable worth of a case, including whether or not your attorneys are ultimately forced to go to trial.
As facts and documents/records are gathered, your Chicago Personal Injury Attorney will be able to better inform you of what to expect in the form of recovery.
