How much is my claim worth? This is a question that personal injury attorneys hear on a regular basis. Of course, it is also one of the most difficult to answer.
Before an attorney can give you an idea of what your claim may be worth, he must examine all of the details of your case. For example, somebody may call and say that they have been attacked by a dog. Immediately following they want to know what their case is worth. Before this can be answered several questions must be asked, including: how did the injury happen? Have you been to a doctor? If so, what type of treatment was suggested to you? Did you get the name and location of the person who owns the dog? Is there any type of scarring or disfigurement?
The answers to these questions make it easier to determine how much a claim is worth.
Each and every personal injury case is unique. Just because one dog bite victim received a $100k settlement does not mean that every other person in this position will receive the same amount.
If you are interested in finding out how much your claim is worth you will need to supply many details to a qualified personal injury attorney.
