The No. 1 question potential clients ask us is, “How much is my case worth?" It’s a tricky question to answer because every case, like every person, is unique. We don’t dodge this question or offer pie in the sky estimates just to get clients to hire us as some firms may do.
In order to come up with any type of reasonable estimate, we must first know the types of injuries suffered and then go over a whole list of factors to adjust our estimate, then compare the situation at hand to other cases we have handled.
What Type Of Damages Can Be Recovered?
At the core of most damage awards are “compensatory damages." Compensatory damages get their name from the fact that they are designed to compensate injured parties for their specific injuries. Compensatory damages can include:
- Medical bills
- Future medical bills
- Lost wages
- Future lost wages
- Awards for past pain and suffering and emotional damages
- Awards for future pain and suffering and emotional damages
- Any other concrete cost to the injured party that can be tied directly to the injury suffered
The amount of compensatory damages awarded is obviously going to vary from person to person because people are different ages, hold different jobs, and heal at different rates.
After discussing the types of damages available and adjusting them for the specific factors involved in the case at hand, we can then compare your case with others we have handled in the past. Since Jaroslawicz & Jaros, PLLC, was founded in 1980, we have helped our clients collect over $2 billion in damages and have recovered over $1 Million for over 100 clients by either verdict or settlement.
