What is My Case Worth?
There is no hard and fast way to say what a particular case is worth – it depends on the details of the case and the evidence that can be found to prove the case in a court of law. Getting the right lawyer can make a significant difference in the overall case value.
A jury must recognize three things for you to be awarded damages:
- Injury: How seriously were you injured? How much pain and suffering have you endured? How much has it cost you in medical care? How has it impaired your ability to work and earn money?
- Liability: Is another party responsible for your injury? To what extent could that party have reasonably foreseen that their action or inaction would cause this injury?
- Damages: What is the dollar amount deemed sufficient to compensate the injury and detriment you have sustained?
The lawyers at Jacobs & Goodman have the commitment, the expertise, and the resources to uncover the evidence of your case, present the case in the most compelling way to the jury, and get maximum compensation for your injury.
During your initial free consultation, we may be able to provide you with a likely settlement range, based on our experience with similar cases.
At Jacobs & Goodman, you always get an attorney, never a case manager like at other firms. So you’ll get an estimate from the person who has actually litigated similar cases. And if we take your case, you can trust that we’ll take it all the way, without cutting corners, something other firms can’t promise.
