Well, unlike what others may tell you, there is no formula. It’s not like an assembly line where a certain type of injury gets a certain fixed value.
You got to look at a couple different things. You got to look at the nature of the injuries, the extent of the medical treatment, and the available insurance coverage before we can start talking about the value of a claim.
Let me give you an example. Had a client. She was in an accident. Broke her arm. Got a cast. Think that’s a pretty good result, right?
But after the cast was put on, she disappeared and didn’t communicate with our office. When she finally resurfaced, we found out she didn’t see any other doctors, and in fact, took the cast off with a hacksaw.
Yeah, unfortunately that case didn’t get resolved for what it could have because the client didn’t get the proper medical treatment and didn’t stay in touch with us.
That’s why we always follow up with our clients regarding their medical treatment so they can get better. We want to present the best case we can, to get the best result.
