What Kind of Compensation Should I Expect?

One common expression at the Law Offices of Willim Berenson is that each case is different and deserves individual attention. Two car accidents are never the same, The potential recovery depends on each client's situation. Even two people in the same car accident have unique cases.

Given that fact, it is difficult or even impossible to say how much your case may worth based on a few questions. Unfortunately there's no standard formula to calculate the value of a case. Factors such as the amount of medical treatment and bills, the extent of the injuries, the severity of the impact and which insurance company the other driver was insured with all affect the amount of money our clients receive. Additionally, whether our clients carried health insurance and auto insurance at the time of the crash can have a huge impact on case value.

Trust Us to Investigate the Value of Your Case

If a law firm tells you how much your case may be worth in the first meeting, you shouldn't trust it. You may be settling for less than you deserve, or you may be promised an unrealistic amount. This goes for insurance companies, too. They may act like they have your best interests in mind, but in reality, they want to settle your case for as little as possible. You should never accept a quick settlement before investigating future medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses.

The only way to really find out how much your case is worth is to work with an experienced attorney. An attorney can use investigators to gather evidence, medical records, and witnesses to build your case to a value that accounts for all medical bills and lost wages, including those in the future. Attorney William K. Berenson has more than 37 years of experience helping injured Texans get the maximum settlements they deserve.
