What is my MVA Personal Injury Lawsuit worth?
There are multiple factors that determine the worth of a personal injury case. In the case of a motor vehicle accident the value is affected by the damages (injuries, medical expenses, property), liability (who is at fault?), and the insurance (maximum recovery). All of these play into what the victim of the accident can receive in a settlement.
Some damages caused by a car accident are easily measured in dollars. Common bodily injuries from an auto accident affect the head, neck, back, shoulders, chest, legs, and abdomen. Common injuries include concussions, herniated disks, whiplash, broken bones, fractures and torn ligaments. These injuries require treatment ranging from surgery to physical therapy that is quantified in the form of medical bills. However, you won’t know the exact value of your injuries until you’ve stopped treating and reach maximum medical improvement (MMI).
