Value Of Your Claim

It is impossible to place a value on your claim until your injuries and damages have been assessed. A spinal cord injury attorney will help to value and prove the totality of your injuries and damages. Spinal cord injuries are considered catastrophic injuries. Typically, catastrophic injury claims will have a higher value than other, less severe types of personal injury claims.

To appropriately value your spinal cord injury claim, medical experts and financial experts may be necessary to assess the long-term effects and costs of your injury. 

Medical experts will help to establish the extent of your injuries by showing the impact that your injuries have on the following: 

  • Your long-term physical health and well-being 
  • Your ability to work 
  • Necessary future medical care 

Settlement Agreements And Trials

Our spinal cord injury clients often express concerns about their case going to trial. Most of our personal injury cases settle before trial, but our attorneys prepare every case as if it will go to trial. They do this because there is no guarantee that your case will settle. You should never feel pressured to accept a low settlement because your case is not ready for trial. Another benefit is that defendants and their insurance companies are more generous in settlement negotiations when they know that the plaintiff’s attorney is not afraid to go to trial. 

There are incentives for insurance companies to settle their cases before trial. Defending litigation is expensive, so insurance companies often prefer to settle their claims and avoid the cost of litigation. When plaintiffs with catastrophic injuries have a strong case against the defendant, settling before trial also eliminates the risk of an exceedingly large jury award.
