How Much is My Accident Case Worth?

By: Attorney Nicholas DiCello

After you’ve been involved in an accident, you may have a lot of questions. You want to know how you’re going to get better and how you’re going to pay the bills while you’re out of work. You want to know how to hold the other party responsible for their actions.

Your main goal during your case is to recover the damages that this person caused. These could be economic or non-economic damages and vary greatly based on how severe your injuries are and if they are permanent.

If your case goes to trial, you may believe that the judge is ultimately responsible for the decision of how much money you receive for your injuries. But it is actually the jurors. A group of your peers will be deciding how much money you deserve for the harm you suffered.

Your case will be evaluated not only by your own attorney but that of the other side. Then both sides will put forth their evidence to the jury and through testimony (such as medical experts), they will try to sway the decision of the jurors one way or another. The compensation you receive is based on quite a few factors. While a broken arm is definitely an issue and can cause you missed time from work, having lost your eyesight is of a much greater value and therefore every case is different. There cannot be a basic formula in which to value your case. You may heal quicker in the short-term but your long-term care could cost much more than someone who had the same type of accident. We must show your jury that you are entitled to as much compensation as possible as the money you are awarded must last your lifetime to cover the medical expenses if your injury is permanent.

    Coming in, we were unsure if we had a case. After meeting with Peter Brodhead, we were very confident with him. I was always comfortable because everyone was professional and friendly.

    I liked the professionalism, efficiency, and thoroughness of your team efforts. I would like Sheila Schebek recognized for her knowledge of account details as quickly as I presented questions. She provided confidence and security in all matters.
