Only after all the investigation is finished and all the evidence is collected can the case be accurately evaluated. In Wrongful Death cases, this can often be done soon after the accident. However, in Personal Injury and Workers’ Compensation cases, it is necessary to document the nature and severity of the injury with medical reports from doctors stating the amount of the permanency disability. Most doctors will not offer an opinion as to the amount of permanent injury until 1 to 1.5 years (or more) has passed.
No competent lawyer can give good advice as to value of a case without complete and accurate information and until your injuries have stabilized and you have received the proper medical treatment. Schmidt-Salita Law Team will help you to decide on a fair settlement amount based on all the facts.
