Value of My Eye Injury Case
Eye injuries can be extensive injuries. Generally the value of the case is determined by whether or not the injuries are permanent or severe. Depending on the degree of the trauma sustained you can evaluate the value of the case. Other factors used to determine value are the age of the plaintiff, occupation and marital status. If the injury has left the plaintiff permanently disabled, the value of the case will include loss of earnings and potential earnings. Additionally, case value will often be determined based on medical bills. Generally, if surgery or other procedures are required, this will be considered in assessing the value of the claim.
