Factors in Determining the Value of Your Case

1. Severity of the Injury: A calculation for the severity of the injury will likely be based on the medical diagnosis by a trained physician, medical bills, hospitalizations, and necessity for medication and rehabilitation care. 2. Pain and Suffering: In jurisdictions across the country juries will have to place a monetary value on the pain and suffering a victim of an injury has suffered. Most jurisdictions use a per diem basis to calculate pain and suffering. An example of a per diem calculation is presented below.
  • A 64 year old has suffered pain and discomfort due to the implantation of a defective hip approximately 400 days, and is expected to suffer from pain for the rest of her life. According to a vocational expert she is expected to live for another 20 years with permanent pain. The jury places a per day monetary amount of $500 for her pain and suffering. Thus the calculation of would be 400 days plus 20 X 365 days = 7,700 days multiplied by $500 equals $3,850,000.
3. Lost Wages and Loss of Future Income: Victims defective medical implants have a right to recovery for lost wages as well as loss of future income. A vocational expert will determine the value of lost wages by calculating the days you have missed multiplied by your average salary during those days. LOS ANGELES CAR ACCIDENT LAWYER
