You suffered very bad injuries in your car accident. You know the driver of the car that hit you was at fault and should be responsible to pay you full compensation for the injuries he cause.
You think your case may be worth $5 million dollars or maybe even $10 million dollars or more.
How then is it possible that you may never see the true value of what your case is worth?
The reality is that there are many reasons you may never see or receive the full value of your injuries. The first is if there's insufficient insurance coverage to pay your full damages. The second is if you ultimately settle prior to trial.
Many litigants prefer to take a negotiated settlement instead of risk the chance a jury will award them less than what they are being offered.
There are many other reasons that may cause you to get less than the full value of your injuries.
Watch the video to learn what some of them are.
Here's a cardiac malpractice case where I was able to achieve a $6 million dollar settlement for my client.
Here's a foot surgery case where a Westchester, NY jury awarded my client $1.55 million dollars for her pain and suffering.
To learn more about how medical malpractice cases work in the state of New York, I encourage you to explore my educational website.
