St Louis Personal Injury Lawyer: How to Determine the Value of Your Case
How does an experienced St Louis Personal Injury Lawyer set the value of a Personal Injury Case or Settlement?
What is the value of your case or claim according to a St Louis Personal Injury Lawyer?
You have been in an auto accident in Missouri or Illinois. You have received medical treatment, including most likely an ambulance trip, an emergency room visit, and an office visit with your family doctor. You may have had x-rays or a ct scan. You may have had physical therapy. Your medical treatment is now complete, but you often feel some lingering pain from the accident. What is the value of your claim?

Several factors help determine an auto accident settlement, including:
1. The severity of the injury;
2. The nature, extent, specialty, proximity, and duration of medical treatment;
3. The amount of the medical bills;
4. Where the accident occurred (among lawyers known as the “venue”);
5. Wage loss;
6. Pain and suffering, physical disability, disfigurement and scars;
7. Mental or cognitive disability;
8. Property damage;
9. Out-of-pocket and other expenses;
10. Possibility of other causes contributing to the injury;
11. Comparative fault of the claimant and other parties;
12. Amount of insurance available;
13. Amount of any liens and the willingness of lien holders to negotiate;
14. Amount of expenses in the litigation; and
15. The expertise of your lawyer.

There are established guidelines that many insurance companies and a St Louis Personal Injury Lawyer will use to arrive at the fair value of a claim. First, the verdict or settlement of any claim or case will depend upon the particular facts. Second, every case is different in some way, and must be judged on its own merits. Third, while every case is unique and no two cases are identical, there are similarities from case to case and from claim to claim to estimate the value or probable range of a a claim or settlement.
Since we only handle injury cases, the attorneys at the Mueller Law Practice frequently find our cases involved the same or similar type of negligence, the same or similar serious injury, and the same or similar legal issues and factual circumstances.
