What is your personal injury case worth?
In most personal injury cases, the plaintiff (person injured) has the responsibility to prove the facts of the case, the necessary elements of a personal injury claim, and an estimate of your damages.
Generally, the team at the Law Offices of Sonyia Byrd will have to prove your personal injury claim “by a preponderance of the evidence,” or according to a similar standard. If your personal injury attorney can’t prove that another party is responsible for your injury, your personal injury case will end there. That’s one reason it’s so critical that you find the right personal injury lawyer – one you can trust to know the standard, help determine what your case is worth and build a strong case to support the value of your claim so you get money you deserve.
The Value of Your Personal Injury Case Depends On:
- The facts of your case
- The quality of your evidence
- The knowledge,experience and dedication of your personal injury lawyer
The facts of your personal injury case will answer the two all-important questions of all personal injury cases:
1.) Who was at fault? There must be another party who is responsible for your personal injury or accident.
2.) What are your damages? you must have damages (losses) for which you can be compensated before you can successfully pursue a personal injury claim or injury settlement.
The facts on your side isn’t enough, however. You and your personal injury lawyer have to prove them in a court of law-or at least convince the insurance company’s attorney that you will be able to do so. That means that your personal injury case is very reliant on the availability of detailed police reports, your personal injury attorney’s ability to craft strong discovery documents and take depositions, and the availability of witnesses and physical evidence.
YOUR PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER:
The quality and commitment of your attorney is critical to a successful personal injury claim and getting the money you deserve. Your personal injury lawyer will have to gather evidence, interview witnesses, calculate your damages, negotiate with the insurance company and much more. Without the ability, hard work and commitment, even favorable facts and evidence may not translate to fair compensation for your personal injury.
