Until at least you have stopped being treated for your injuries, determining the value of your case is a bit difficult. Learning how to value your case is, in part, why lawyers went to law school and spent years in training, experience, and staying current on laws and trends that affect your case. In the golden days, soft tissue injury claims settled like clockwork for three times the medical bills and other damages. This is simply not the case anymore and it has nothing to do with a great economy.
Unfortunately, there are so many factors involved evaluating an injury claim, that it is impossible for any other lawyer to tell you with any certainty the value of your case until having all of the necessary information. It can only be said that most people either grossly under value, or terribly over value, their injury claims.
