What Is My Personal Injury Case Worth?

If you’ve been hurt due to the negligence of another person or entity, the value of your personal injury case depends upon liability, the severity of your injuries, and the availability of insurance coverage. This is true whether a car accident, a slip and fall, or a defective product has harmed you.

At Valiente Mott, we have recovered millions of dollars in compensation throughout Nevada. After thoroughly analyzing your case, we can estimate its worth based on the above and fight for your right to recover compensation for all your losses and damages.

The First Factor: Liability

Under Nevada law, injury victims have the right to sue at-fault parties for the losses they have sustained due to negligence and wrongdoing of another party. Whether you were hurt by a careless driver or a restaurant owner who failed to clean up a spill, you deserve compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages. Was the accident partly your fault? Under Nevada’s modified comparative negligence statute, you can recover compensation if you were less than 50 percent at fault.

The Second Factor: What Are Your Damages?

You must have suffered material losses to be eligible for personal injury compensation. The extent of the damage you have suffered will largely determine the value of your claim.

You may be eligible for the following:

  • Wage loss
  • Medical bills, past and future
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Property damage

Our firm will assess all the damages you are entitled to and build a strong case to recover them.

The Third Factor: What Insurance Coverage Is Available?

It doesn’t matter how much your case is worth if the defendant doesn’t have the resources or the insurance to pay for your losses. In most personal injury claims, the source of coverage is the insurance policy of the at-fault party. If no insurance coverage is available, you can sue that party directly, provided they possess enough assets to make it worthwhile.

Typically, there is insurance coverage to draw upon, whether it is a business owner’s general liability policy, a careless driver’s liability coverage, or even your own uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. We examine the policy details, its limits, and other factors before determining how much compensation could be available to you.

At Valiente Mott, we take great pride in our skill at negotiating settlement amounts after auto accidents, premises liability (slip and falls), defective products, or wrongful death.

It’s best not to accept an insurance adjustor’s settlement offer as the final word in your personal injury claim. It is rarely enough to cover the full extent of your damages. Instead, schedule a free consultation with our team at Valiente Mott. We can assess your case, provide an accurate value of your claim, and fight for the maximum amount available. Since we work on a contingency basis, there are no upfront legal fees.
