WHAT IS MY CASE WORTH?
The number one question we are asked is “What is my case worth?” However, putting a dollar amount on your injury case can be extremely difficult.
There are many factors that play a role in determining the value of your case, including the seriousness of the injuries, the length of time it takes to recover, whether or not you improve fully or remain with long term injuries, the severity of the collision, how badly the defendant acted and who they are (Ex. Drunk Driver), the available insurance coverage, the location and venue where the case would have to be tried, etc. Consequently, there is no set formula.
We are Atlanta Personal Injury Law Group – Gore LLC, seek to be open and clear with you every step of the way through your case.
