What Determines the Value of My Personal Injury Case?

This is a question that I frequently encounter. It is a legitimate and appropriate question for a personal injury client to ask. In this video blog, I discuss how credibility is “king.” Is the person bringing the lawsuit honest? Is the person reliable? What is the background of the accident victim client? Does he or she have a background that is consistent with hard work? Has he or she demonstrated a caring attitude prior to the accident?

The answers to the above questions go a long way into forming the personal biography– a term commonly described as the personal narrative– which will be very much a part of my presentation as a personal injury lawyer.

It makes a difference when you are able to represent honest and likable clients. The other side can discern those qualities quite easily. Further, those qualities help to create a picture of a client who is candid– candid about how the accident occurred, candid about their injuries, and candid about any of the facts that are deemed relevant to the case.

The answer to the question in this blog starts with the client and the client’s personal characteristics. The answer doesn’t end there but it is certainly a foundational element in the determination of value.

While the next blog post will give some greater specifics about the worth of a case, let us not forget that credibility is crucial. Without it, it is very hard to obtain sufficient compensation in a serious personal injury case. Partly, that is due to the increased likelihood that a serious case will be resolved further along in the process, i.e. closer to the time of trial. Therefore, there are more opportunities for the defendant to encounter the plaintiff, if not directly than through other witnesses in a deposition or through the use of a summons to keepers of records for employment data, medical documents, or any other material that may be relevant to the action.
