What is my case worth for personal injury in California?

View Profile


A personal injury case in California can be worth anywhere from thousands of dollars to multiple millions of dollars, depending upon the severity of the injury. Every case is different, but the factors are the severity of the injury, the long-term consequences, the medical bills incurred and the loss of wages and future earning capacity. A jury awards damages for pain and suffering in addition to the actual out-of-pocket monetary expenses suffered. Although every case is different, a skilled personal injury attorney can often give you a sense of the value of your own case after reviewing the facts in face-to-face meeting or even a telephone conversation.
