If an attorney tells you the specific value of your case right away, seek a second opinion.

Due to the individual nature of every case, it’s impossible to establish the value of a case right off the bat. If an attorney offers a specific dollar value they think they can get for your case without actually putting the work in to calculating damages which may be unique to you, that may not be the attorney you want to go with.

From medical history, necessary treatment, to the circumstances of the situation which created the need for an attorney in the first place, every case is different. It’s impossible to put an accurate price tag on a case without first looking into a client’s background and the specific ways their current situation has affected and will continue to affect their life.

Some damages may not be immediately evident, so it’s important to find an attorney who will sit down with you and help predict the ways your current injury could continue to affect you into the future, both physically and financially.

Look for an attorney who tells you the truth and is committed to getting you the highest compensation you deserve.

In many cases a client may be eligible to receive compensation at a greater value than the one they settle for. Attorneys who are less experienced with trial and/or do not put the necessary time into calculating the value of a specific case are more likely to encourage a client to accept a low-ball settlement offer outside of court.

Most personal injury attorneys offer free consultations, so getting a second opinion can come at no cost to the injured party. It’s a good idea to browse around and speak to a few different attorneys before settling on the one you want to represent your case. The difference is night and day between hiring a disinterested lawyer who does not take the time to get to know your life and your case, and hiring an experienced lawyer committed to getting you the compensation you specifically deserve.

How much is my case worth?

We asked Georgia attorney Jan Hinson in this AskTheLawyers.com™ Quick Question.

Jan Hinson:
Everyone wants to know how much their case is worth, but if a lawyer tells you a certain dollar figure that they can get you for your case, you should probably seek a second opinion.

Everyone's case varies very widely from your medical history to the facts and circumstances to what you did. So you would be better off consulting with someone who says, "Let's get all of our facts in a row, and we will work to get you the highest compensation that you deserve."
