How do you know how much your personal injury case is worth? Let's ask Pennsylvania lawyer Frank Walker for an Ask the Lawyers quick question.
A lot of times people want to value a busted knee cap or MCL or ACL spring, a sprained ankle, a amputated arm, all of those have different value in different jurisdictions and it depends how your attorney prepares the case, what experts say, what the medical records say, how much insurance is... Not insurance is available but how much money has been paid into insurance to where you can use that information to give to the claims rep and say, "This is the value of my case because I've had to pay... My insurance company has to pay this amount in medical bills," and a lot of times the insurance company says, "Well, wait a minute, if these are your medical bills that had to be paid by insurance, then maybe we'll use that to kind of formulate what we think a fair and just settlement would be." It's not gonna be what you want, it's not gonna be what they want, but odds are if you get an experienced attorney, they can maximize what that amount is.
