Areas of Practice
Q: What is my car accident case worth?
A: A car accident case involves many pieces, almost like a puzzle. Major factors for a case’s worth are: the force of the impact, damage to the vehicles, a doctor’s opinion in medical records about the severity and future limitations of the injuries, the amount of medical bills, and lost wages. Once we have those pieces, we can better gauge your settlement value range.
