Is my case worth pursuing?

How do you know if your case is worth pursuing?

You won't know without asking.

How do you know if your client's case is worth pursuing?

You won't know without asking.

I love getting calls about cases. I think it is interesting to hear the weird situations that befall people.  If there is a case to be pursued, I listen for that. If not, I give the best advice I can and say thanks for thinking of me. Many cases are not worth pursuing because in the end they will not make the client enough money for the client to be satisfied.  There is no reason to begin a case with a client if you know the result will not be satisfying.

Personal injury cases are very fact dependent.  They all turn on little factual details and general areas of the law that apply to personal injury cases.  As a client, you could not possibly know what a case is worth without some specialized knowledge of how "the system" values cases.

So, if you don't know, ask.  Give me a call 215-259-3687 or email me at andrew@neuwirthlaw.com.  It is free to talk.  I spend a lot of my time on the phone listening to people and the situations that caused them harm.

Here are some results from the past few years.  Many of these clients had no idea that their case was valuable in monetary terms. They did know that they had been harmed by someone else's negligence.

    Vehicle Crashes
  1. Car vs. Car crash with rotator cuff surgery: $330,000
  2. Car vs. Car crash with rotator cuff surgery: $225,000
  3. Car vs. Motorcycle crash with ankle surgery: $200,000
  4. Truck vs. bus crash with single epidural injection: $80,000
    Falls:
  1. Fall on ice with knee injury and replacement: $200,000
    Special Situations
  1. Oil Spill on residential property: $780,000
  2. Carbon Monoxide Poisoning: $225,000
  3. Falling tree injures bystander: $65,000
    Dog Bites:
  1. Dog Bite on face: $300,000
  2. Dog Bite on Face: $206,000

Recent results are presented as examples of firm successes and not a predictor of future results.  Each case is different and each of the above cases had specific facts that made them unique. It would be unwise to evaluate your case based on the above without seeking legal advice on the strengths and weaknesses of your own case or situation.
