The value of a claim is not black and white. Determining this value involves looking at various factors, including the nature of the injuries as well as the economic losses sustained from the accident. The amount given to these factors is a result of a thorough look at medical records and history, medical treatments and talking with the plaintiff’s physician.

Another determining factor includes the validity of the claim. Is there enough evidence that points to the negligence of the defendant? The more evidence there is, the more value is placed on the claim.
