A personal injury claim may be worth millions of dollars or practically nothing. No honest lawyer can tell a client the value of their claim at the beginning. Various facts, laws, and evidence have to be investigated and evaluated. That being said, the primary components of a person injury claim include past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, past and future lost wages, and whether the injured person bears any responsibility for the incident which produced the injuries. If the responsible party's actions were particularly outrageous, additional damages known as punitive damages may also be recoverable, which would further increase the value of the claim.
