Question 3:

How Much Is My Personal Injury Case Worth?

The value of your personal injury case can vary dramatically from person to person and from case to case. Only after investigating the circumstances of the accident and understanding the complete medical history should a lawyer opine on the value of a personal injury case. There are many factors involved. If liability is proven, then under the law, the plaintiff is entitled to, at the very least:

  • past medical bills,
  • future medical bills,
  • lost wages,
  • lost earning capacity, and/or
  • other ‘out-of-pocket’ expenses.

Pennsylvania law also allows monetary recovery for pain and suffering, which may include:

  • physical pain,
  • emotional pain,
  • stress,
  • mental anguish,
  • embarrassment,
  • humility, and/or
  • reduction in the likelihood of marriage.
