How is the value of my case determined?
The value of the case is primarily determined by the severity of the injuries and damages, as well as the insurance coverage held by the negligent party.
Two people may suffer very different injuries even if they were in the same type of accident, so the case must consider the end result of the accident in addition to the circumstances that caused it.
In terms of insurance coverage, even if a person’s injuries might merit a larger amount, it is true that the insurance and resources of the negligent party can be a limiting factor in how much the victim can reasonably receive. If the negligent party has more insurance coverage, that doesn’t necessarily mean that the victim will receive more compensation, but it makes it possible to award a larger amount if the case merits it.
