I Slipped And Fell In A Restaurant And Suffered Nerve Damage. How Much Is My Nerve Injury Worth?
Every case will have a different value assigned to it because the type of nerve damage can range from minor to disabling. For example, a slip and fall victim may recover from his or her nerve injuries within months or years, but another victim might never recover and is forced to live a life of pain and reduced mobility.
A lawyer will look at many different things when determining a Fort Lauderdale slip and fall case worth, including lost wages, medical bills, future medical expenses, future loss of earnings, loss of the enjoyment of life, and pain and suffering. By thoroughly reviewing these factors, an attorney can get a good idea of what your case is worth and the amount you should and shouldn’t accept from the insurance company during settlement negotiations.
Generally, the insurance company will not want to give you what your case is worth—forcing you into trial. However, trial can be a good thing because a jury will get to hear the impact the nerve damage has had on your life. Not only will the type of nerve damage you suffered be the main factor in assigning your case a value, but your case will also depend on the evidence presented during trial such as a medical expert’s testimony, doctor’s testimony, and your lawyer’s presentation of the case. After listening to all the evidence, only then will a jury assess your case and assign an exact dollar amount.
