I don’t know. I really don’t know. That answer is followed by a laundry list of lawyerly explanations: no two cases are the same, each are judged on their merits, blah blah blah. This incredibly trite response is also true. Any accident lawyer who thinks they can accurately evaluate your case without reviewing all of your medical records and bills and understanding the severity of the accident and the injuries is completely kidding themselves – or you.
That said, there are a few things you can look at to better understand the value of your Maryland accident claim. First, there is an understanding of how insurance companies value cases. Second, there is data available on how juries decide similar cases.
Again, going back to the cliché, each case is absolutely different. But if you don’t know whether your case is worth $5,000,000 or $5,000 there are two resources for you. The first is our article on How Insurance Companies Value Personal Injury Cases, which includes a list of injuries and verdict amounts for those types of injuries. The second is on the Maryland Auto Accident Lawyer website which breaks down the nuance of how Maryland auto accident cases are valued. In other words, it discusses how much money you might get for your accident claim.
Going back to the title of this article, the question is: how much money will you get for your injuries from the accident and, for some victims, how fast will you get it? That really is the issue in any personal injury case. Our job as Maryland accident lawyers is unambiguous: to get you as much money as possible for your injuries. One question that is critical to the analysis of how much you will recovery is not included in the statistics on accident verdicts: how hard your personal injury lawyer is willing to fight to get you the most money possible.
