How Much is My Personal Injury Case Worth?

Not all cases are valued alike. Unlike the insurance companies that try to make a one size fits all valuation of a person’s injury case, the real value of your case depends on how your injuries have affected your life and sometimes the lives of family members.

Other elements factor into the value of your case, including:

  • Medical bills
  • Your future treatment costs
  • Your property damage
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity in the future that is caused by your injuries

Anyone injured in a preventable accident is entitled to receive proper medical care to treat their injury. Your only concern when injured is to get better and comply with your doctor’s orders. This includes the use of physical therapy, cognitive therapy in the case of a head injury, and sometimes emotional injuries will require therapy visits with a counselor or therapist.

Leonard B. Gabbay will walk you through any steps needed and give you the tools you need to make your next decision regarding your case.

How Does a Personal Injury Claim Work?

Leonard B. Gabbay will talk to you one-on-one to fully understand your case and how he can help you in your personal injury case. If you choose to go with him, there are two ways to proceed:

Out-of-court settlement

An out-of-court settlement is a negotiation which results in a written agreement and compensation that is fair to both parties (most often, some financial payout). Once the agreement has been signed, all parties involved agree that the matter is closed and will not be brought up again.

The only way we know how to get an out of court settlement in the case is to investigate the case and negotiate from a position of power. We know how to do this, and we are good at it. Only attorneys, insurers, and those involved in the actual lawsuit are present, possibly reducing stress, keeping costs low, and being the simplest way to work towards achieving wanted results.

Formal Lawsuit

When matters cannot be achieved through out-of-court settlement or arbitration, a civil complaint may be filed against the other side. When this happens, the matter becomes formalized and is put through proceedings in civil court to work towards reaching the desired outcome. This can be complicated and expensive for all parties involved.

We have always been successful in every case we have tried. We know how to try lawsuits, and jurors appreciate our passion for seeking justice.
