Austin attorney Ethan Shaw explains the factors that go into how much your personal injury claim is worth.
Here are a few factors that may impact the value of your personal injury claim:
- The amount of lost wages
- The amount of past and anticipated future medical bills
- The emotional distress suffered by the victim
Notably, Mr. Shaw explains that the experience of your attorney can significantly impact the value of any settlement or verdict for your personal injury claim. A more experienced attorney may be able to negotiate a more favorable settlement for multiple reasons including:
- the attorney’s experience may result in additional damages being uncovered
- the attorney’s experience may impact the insurance company’s settlement strategy, particularly if the attorney has a history of success at trial
The attorneys at Shaw Cowart, LLP have the experience to evaluate your personal injury claim and to aggressively pursue your claim at trial.
