FAQ: How Much Is My Auto Accident Case Worth?
One of the most common questions the Mann, Wyatt & Rice Injury Attorneys gets asked is, “How much is my auto accident case worth?” No doubt, the question arises due to the fact that thousands of vehicle accidents occur each year in and around Kansas City, and many of those crashes do result in injury.
“We get that question a lot,” said auto accident attorney Jesse Tanksley of the Mann, Wyatt & Rice Injury Attorneys in Kansas City. “The reality is that [how much a case is worth] really depends on so many different factors. It’s impossible to say without knowing all the facts.”
Although the value of an auto accident case cannot be determined without discussing the specifics of the case first, Tanksley said there are some factors that do often impact the value. Such factors include, but are not limited to:
- How badly the person is injured
- The cost of all the medical bills
- If the injured person has had to miss work (lost wages)
- If the injured person will need future medical care
- If there has been a full recovery or if there will be ongoing pain
According to Tanksley, if you have been injured in a traffic accident, you should contact an attorney to discuss the specifics of your situation. The attorney can then look at all the facts and discuss how much your auto accident case might be worth.
