How much is your case worth?
In addition to calculating your medical expenses and lost wages, our Cape Charles personal injury lawyers will look at the full extent of your anticipated losses. Will you need ongoing rehabilitative care? Do your injuries prevent you from returning to work? Have you suffered some type of permanent disability? Have your family relationships suffered as a result?
These are some of the most important factors that will affect the value of a personal injury claim:
- The nature and severity of your injuries
- The total costs for past and future medical care
- The income and wages that have been lost
- If the injuries will diminish future earning capacity
- If the injuries caused inconvenience to the family
