What factors affect the value of my personal injury claim?

The value of assessing a Newfoundland and Labrador personal injury claim takes time, and evidence has to be gathered on many issues. Several factors affect the value of a claim, including:

  • Whether you have any responsibility for the accident in which you were injured
  • The nature and extent of your physical and emotional injuries
  • The amount and course of treatment for your injuries
  • Whether or not you will be left with total or partial disability as a result of your injuries
  • The nature of pre-accident employment and income
  • Whether you had to stop working, and if so, how long it takes you to return to work and your ability to return to the same level of pre-accident employment (or your ability to return to work at all), and
  • The costs of treatment and of any necessary personal care

An experienced personal injury lawyer will walk you through these factors and keep you informed every step of the way.
