How Can I Figure Out What I Will Receive In Court?

The facts of every case are different. They don’t align because of the myriad ways that people come in contact with products in their every day lives: toys, work tools, airbags, and a million others. However, there are some surefire ways to determine what you could receive in court. This won’t give you a precise estimate but it will give you a range of recovery that could be possible after a successful trial. First, add up all of your hospital bills, lost income, travel expenses, and other direct costs. Then, see how your life has changed in intangible ways since the accident like scars, disabilities, and losses in normal life. If you have both direct and indirect damages, you could see recovery as much as two or three times what your out-of-pocket losses were. This simple formula will give you a glimpse of what you could obtain through court or settlement. To understand more fully what you could achieve, speak with a qualified Illinois personal injury attorney.

In addition, Jonathan was understanding and patient pertaining to any of my questions or concerns. I was very happy with the end result and I highly recommend Jonathan Rosenfeld.
★★★★★
Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own. Ethan Armstrong, Google User
