What Is My Personal Injury Case Worth?

The value of your personal injury claim will vary depending on the nature of your injuries and the circumstances of your accident. For example, if you sustain catastrophic car accident injuries that render you paralyzed for the rest of your life, you may be entitled to much more compensation than if you were still able to walk. To determine the potential value of your claim, your personal injury lawyer will need to carefully review your case and calculate your lifetime costs, using a multiplier based on the severity of your injuries.

Recoverable Damages in a Personal Injury Case

Economic, non-economic, and punitive are the three damages available in a personal injury case. How many damages you will be able to pursue and how much compensation you will be able to recover depends on the specifics of your induvial case, as all personal injury cases are different.

All three types of damages are responsible for compensating for a different loss. Economic and non-economic damages are similar in purpose since both of these damages fall under the umbrella of “compensatory damages” which are damages that compensate the injured party for a loss. Punitive damages are different from compensatory damages in that their main purpose is to punish the negligent party for their wrong behavior. Compensatory damages are most often awarded in personal injury cases whereas punitive damages are not often awarded. Compensatory damages compensate for both tangible and intangible losses including:

  • Loss of income
  • Medical expenses
  • Mental anguish
  • Pain and suffering
