What is Your Back Injury Case Worth -Cincinnati Lawyer

Attorney Serving Cincinnati, Mason, Hamilton & Nearby Areas in Ohio

If you have a serious back injury caused in a car accident by the fault of another you may wonder what your case is worth. There is no hard and fast answer to that. Let me illustrate by just a few cases I looked up. 1 Herniated disc in back with no surgery and $7000 in medical bills settled for $40,000.00 2 Herniated disc in back with surgery and permanent pain medical bills were $36,000.00 and lost wages $150,000.00 settlement $338,000 3. Herniated disc $10,000.00 in medical bills surgery settlement $63,000.00 4 herniated disc jury verdict $116,000.00 5. herniated disc 4457 in medical bills and $1200 lost wages, settlement $61,000 There are so many variables. All these cases assume that the car accident was the other person's fault. What you do not know is was there prior injury, was there gaps in treatment, was the car damage significant, were the symptoms consistent and immediate, was there significant pain, was there limitation of activity, did the defennse doctor agree or disagree, was the person injured someone that worked hurt or was a constant complainer that would put off the jury, was the defendant a big company. All of these facts get taken into account and many more. Each case is different. How does the layperson get a clue as to what their case is worth and whether a settlement is worthwhile. You really can not count on the insurance company to tell you . Why should they. They are your adversary. You really need to find a competent experienced personal injury attorney and place your trust in them. Here is a video I made on the two biggest mistakes that injury victims make in their evaluation. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CjrjSNKAEvU&feature=player_embedded By Cincinnati West Chester Ohio car accident injury attorney call Tony to get help now 1-800-447-6549
