https://www.turleylawfirm.com/ When people are injured at sea, on the waterfront, in a boat, or anywhere while working, they often want to know what their case is worth. In fact, this is one of the most common questions lawyers often get asked. While it is normal to want to know how much money your case may be worth, it is important that you understand what goes into evaluating your case to determine your case value.
If any lawyer shares his or her thoughts about the value of your case upon meeting you, you should find another attorney. There is no way even the most experienced lawyer can determine your Jones Act case worth so soon. There are many factors that go into the value of a case. Because every case is different, there is no one who can tell you how much your case is worth without knowing all your medical bills, future medical bills, past wage losses, future lost wages, and more. Additionally, damages like disfigurement, loss of enjoyment of life, and pain and suffering are subjective, but will also be added to your total damages.
