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.

What Constitutes a Wrongful Death?

In order to have a wrongful death claim, you cannot simply show that the victim died. As with a personal injury case, you must demonstrate that negligence took place – and that that negligence directly led to the individual’s untimely death. Whether caused by a drunk driver, a thoughtless property owner, or a pharmaceutical company, the death must have some wrongful action behind it. You must also have had a legally-established relationship with the deceased individual in order to bring a wrongful death action on their behalf. Otherwise, you will not have a case.

To establish that the defendant is legally liable for your loved one’s death, you must show:

  • That the defendant had a “duty of care” to protect your loved one against reasonable harm
  • That the defendant violated that duty of care
  • That there existed an unsafe condition because of the violation
  • That your loved one was killed as a direct result of injuries related to the violation
