30 Things That Affect The Value Of A Personal Injury Case

Personal Injury Case Evaluation Factors

One of the questions a Personal Injury Attorney is asked most often is what factors affect the value of a bodily injury claim. The term bodily injury and personal injury are often used interchangeably. The list of different factors is very fact specific to your individual claim, and it should be noted that this list below is not exclusive nor does every factor listed below apply in every case. I have prepared a list of 30 Things that Affect the Value of a Personal Injury Case.

The list below is based on my education, training, and most importantly years of experience working on personal injury cases. Except for the first four factors, the list is in no particular order. Some of the items on the list are self explanatory, but if you wish to read more, some of the list is a link to a separate page that defines exactly what the terms mean.
