This is an impossible question for anyone to give an honest answer in the first few months of your case.  There are many factors to consider when determining the value of your case such as:

  • What were your injuries?
  • How long did you treat with doctors and therapists?
  • How much work did you miss?
  • Will you need long-term medical treatment?
  • Was the person who caused the accident under the influence of drugs or alcohol?

The longer you treat with a doctor, the more likely a jury will award you compensation for “pain and suffering” which is how we are able to negotiate with insurance companies. This is why it is extremely important to go to keep going to the doctor until you get better.  This establishes a “paper trial” of evidence documenting your injuries and how it has taken you to get better which we will show the insurance company, or to a jury if we are not able to settle with the insurance company.  The personal injury attorneys at Dayson & Shalabi Law Firm, LLC will not negotiate with the insurance company until you have been released by your doctors.  This allows us to show the insurance company the total amount of medical bills you received as a result of the at-fault driver’s negligence.  You only have one opportunity to settle your case and the insurance company needs to see the entire picture so that we can get you every dollar of compensation you deserve.
