ANSWER: Any attorney who tells you what your case is worth in an initial meeting is doing you a disservice. What your case is worth depends on how easily your case can be proven, and the damages you have suffered. How much were your hospital bills? Did you lose income and time from employment? Is your injury permanent? Will you need future care or have other future expenses? What are the odds that a jury is going to find in your favor? Answering such questions takes time. We employ a number of means to evaluate the fair value of your case, but a lot of our insight on case value is based on our collective years of handling cases just like yours. We never settle a case without your permission, and only after discussing with you, when the time is right, all the considerations for the value of your case.
