Affix an exact value to each claimable damage

It is important to identify all damages and assign a value to each one. This process is relatively straightforward for economic damages such as medical bills but can take some time.

Certain damages like lower earning capacity or non-economic losses require more information in order to be properly calculated. Our firm is experienced in performing these calculations so you can be sure that your case will be valued accurately before we begin settlement negotiations with the at fault driver’s insurance.
