FAQ: How Much is My Joplin, Missouri, Auto Accident Case Worth?

injured person after auto accident

The team at Mann, Wyatt & Tanksley Midwest Personal Injury Firm in Joplin, Missouri, is commonly asked: “How much is my auto accident case worth?” The question likely arises due to the fact that thousands of vehicle accidents occur each year in and around Joplin, and many of those crashes do result in injury.

“We get that question a lot,” said auto accident attorney Jesse Tanksley of the Mann, Wyatt & Tanksley Midwest Personal Injury Firm in Joplin. “The reality is that [how much a case is worth] really depends on so many different factors. It’s impossible to say without knowing all the facts.”

Although the value of an auto accident case cannot be determined without discussing the specifics of the personal injury case first, Tanksley said there are some factors that do often impact the value. Such factors include, but are not limited to:

  1. How badly the person is injured
  2. The cost of all the medical bills
  3. If the injured person has had to miss work (lost wages)
  4. If the injured person will need future medical care
  5. If there has been a full recovery or if there will be ongoing pain

According to Tanksley, if you have been injured in a traffic accident, you should contact an attorney to discuss the specifics of your situation. The attorney can then look at all the facts and discuss how much your auto accident case might be worth.
