What is my case worth? If it is well settled, an injured party, the "plaintiff", is entitled to be compensated for all his damages. Bixby v. Dunlap, 56 N.H. 456 (1876). New Hampshire law “does not require that damages be calculated with mathematical certainty, the method used to compute damages need not be more than approximation”. Cabone v. Tierney, 151 N.H. 521 (2004).
The conduct of the person who caused the damages (called the "tortfeasor") can increase damages. If your case makes it to trial, the jury may take into consideration intentional malicious behavior of the defendant. Negligence alone won't generally act as a damages multiplier.
You want to know what your case is worth. The total value of your case evolves as your treatment progresses, facts become available, and the extent of injuries become certain. Some of the elements Attorney Clark uses to determine the value of your claim are: the extent of the injuries, pain, scarring, marital status, cost of medical treatment, permanency of injury, brain, spinal and neurological injury, lost future earning capacity, age of the client, damage to family relationships ("loss of consortium"), and future medical cost. Other considerations include evidence available, character of the injury, preexisting injuries, lost wages and incidental damages.
Personal injury law is complex. Attorney Clark will help ensure that you get what you deserve using his knowledge of state statutes and regulations, case law, medical issues. He will bring in outside experts when necessary. He will use his ability to negotiate complex issues and try legal matters to get the best possible results.
