As you may imagine, one of the most frequent questions we receive is “What is my case worth”?

The real value of any case is the amount a judge or jury awards you at trial. The difficult part is trying to determine the value of a case prior to trial so that a decision can be made whether to settle or whether to go to trial and let a jury decide. In order to value a case, insurance companies and lawyers use their experience in handling these claims and their knowledge of what juries in that locality have awarded in similar cases in the past.

Many factors are taken into consideration when evaluating the value of a personal injury claim, including but not limited to:

  1. The amount of medical expenses Present lost income and future income
  2. The severity of your injury How your injury affects your life
  3. Whether the injury limits your activities Whether the injury causes you difficulties performing your job
  4. Whether your injuries are permanent including whether you have any scarring or permanent disfigurement
  5. Whether your injuries are new injuries or old injuries that were aggravated by the wreck Whether your injuries required hospitalization, surgery, physical therapy or other medical procedures
  6. The severity of the wreck, including how badly the cars were damaged
  7. Whether any evidence can be presented by the defense to show that you may have been partly at fault
  8. Your ability to make a good impression on the jury and your ability to express how the accident and injuries have adversely affected your life
  9. The quality of your witnesses and their ability to relate to a jury and explain to the jury how the accident and your injuries have affected your life
  10. The severity and length of time you endured pain, suffering, inconvenience and were generally unable to follow your normal course of affairs
  11. Whether or not you were involved in other accidents after the one you were hurt in
  12. Finally, the attorneys’ familiarity with the area where the case will be tried is also very important. It is extremely helpful if the attorney lives and works in the community where the case will be tried.

I was recommended to Patrick by another lawyer, it was the best recommendation I have ever had. I was getting the run around by the workers comp insurance company for months. With in a week of retaining Patrick that changed immediately. He got answers and results that seemed impossible for me to. When you are dealing with Patrick it doesn’t take long to figure out he really does care about your wellbeing and getting you taken care of. You are not just a number to him. He always answers or calls you back, I called him several times late on a Friday left a message to call me Monday not Patrick he called me late Friday. You want find that anywhere. He is always there to answer any questions or concerns you have and happy to do so.He also has a great support staff Jennifer was always so pleasant and helpful. She stayed on top of weekly requirements and anything else I needed help with. Patrick went up against some tough opposition and worked relentlessly to get me a fair settlement. I came to Patrick at my wits end and in the end I feel like things could not have gone any better. Thank you Patrick and Jennifer for all you have done. If you need workers comp help you will not find any better.

I tried 3 times on my own to get the disability benefits that I deserved and was denied almost immediately each time. I was about to lose my home and fell into major depression and diagnosed having generalized anxiety disorder due to stress. I told myself to try 1 more time. I asked my attorney, who does not specialize in disability cases, who should I contact. He immediately told me to contact B. Patrick Agnew. The firm agreed to take my case. Their paralegal Jennifer Martin was a God send to me. It only took the firm 4 months to help get my benefits approved. If anyone needs a disability attorney, look no further. Make a call and you will not regret it!!!!!
