Each car accident case involving injury is worth a different amount depending upon the facts and circumstances of what happened, how and why the harm was caused and the severity of the injuries. In each case, you want to look to see if there’s lost wages and how it would affect your future wage-earning capacity.
Sometimes when someone’s hurt in a wreck, the injury will actually get worse over time because they develop post-traumatic arthritis that actually becomes debilitating and they can no longer continue to work in the job they have and lawyers call that reduced work life expectancy, meaning you’re going to retire sooner than you wanted to, related back to this car accident.
If you or a loved one have been hurt in a car accident, you need to get with a lawyer that has a lot of experience. I’d be happy to meet with you. Please give me a call and we’ll sit down talk about it.
