Personal Injury cases involve motor vehicle accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, premises liability cases which involve slip and fall accidents, product liability injury due to defect in a product, and construction site accidents.

If you have suffered an injury due to an accident, you’ll have questions for your attorney.

The most common questions are:

Do I have a case?
What’s my case worth?
How long will it take for my case to resolve?

There are a couple of examples on how Sabra and Aspden determine whether or not you have a case. If need be, they may hire an investigator to take photographs of motor vehicles, of the accident scene, and take statements of witnesses if they happen to have seen the accident. They also may hire experts for accident reconstruction and or safety practices at a construction site.

There are 6 main factors how Sabra and Aspden determine your case value:

1) How much are the medical bills?
2) How much are the lost wages?
3) How long you’re out of work?
4) How long you’re getting medical treatment?
5) Whether or not there is permanency? Such as a scar, or loss of function of arm or leg
6) Any future medical expenses? Another surgery or additional treatment due to changes to your condition due to the accident.

One of the questions a client often asks is: How soon will my case be settled?

You do not want to settle your case until you’ve completed with your medical treatment or reached a medical end result.

There are several factors as to how long it will be until your case is settled.

On average it’s several months to several years between the time you’re in an accident and when the case has been settled and time the case is finally resolved.
