How much is my personal injury case work? This question is often posed to me as a Florida personal injury attorney by a client who has been injured in an automobile accident. At the beginning of most cases, it is difficult to estimate the value or even a value range for a personal injury case. The value of a personal injury case including an automobile accident case depends on a number of factors including the following: the amount of bodily injury insurance coverage, the amount of uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage, the availability of PIP (Personal Injury Protection) and Med Pay (Medical Payment) insurance coverage, the availability of health insurance, the total amount of past medical bills, the total amount of future medical bills, the total amount of past wage loss, the total amount of future wage loss, the loss of earning capacity, best pain and suffering, future pain and suffering, and the loss of enjoyment of life. With pursuing an injury claim, the value of a case increases with the severity of the injuries and extent of the medical treatment. For instance if a person has limited care and limited diagnostic testing and findings, the case may have a low value. On the other hand, if a case involves positive diagnostic testing, pain management, and the need for surgery, the case will have a significant value. Of course, there are many different types of cases out there and each case should be evaluated on its own merits. Since there are so many variables that can be utilized to value a case, it is important to hire a Florida personal injury attorney for advice, consultation, and representation.
