Q: I was involved in a car accident and my neck really hurts. How much is my case worth?
A: The value of your case depends on the liability of the other driver, and what a jury would determine is a fair and reasonable amount to compensate you for your pain and suffering. Factors that determine your pain and suffering include the type and cost of the medical treatment, lost wages and permanent physical and mental impairments. It’s impossible to determine the value of your case until you’ve received the appropriate medical treatment and your injuries are resolved, and you are at “maximum medical improvement.”
