How do Burn Injury Attorneys Determine the Value of a Case?
Your Palm Bay burn attorney can determine the value of your case by attributing monetary values to your non-monetary damages and adding these values to your monetary damages. We will use a valuation method that the insurance company (or a judge) will likely recognize and approve. If they approve of the valuation, they’ll compensate you for your damages.
We understand your pain and other damages may be very serious. We also understand that assigning monetary values to your non-monetary damages may seem impossible. However, it’s necessary to do this to recover compensation for these damages, and your lawyer knows how to calculate a fair settlement figure.

What Other Services Can I Expect from My Palm Bay Burn Lawyer?
In addition to listing and valuating your damages so you can claim them, your lawyer can take on every other aspect of your case. You’ll be able to focus entirely on your recovery and your family while your lawyer takes care of all of the following for you and more:
Proving Your Damages
It can be difficult to prove your damages. For example, you may struggle to prove that you’re suffering from significant impairment due to your injuries. Your lawyer can prove your damages for you, such as by collecting your medical records and showing them to the insurer or judge. Your lawyer may even be able to hire an expert, like a medical specialist, who can provide proof of your damages.
Proving the Other Party’s Liability
Your lawyer may have to show the insurer or judge evidence of the at-fault party’s liability for your damages. For example, your burn injury attorney in Palm Bay, FL may show security camera footage or the police report, which may indicate the other party was negligent, and that negligence led to your burn injuries.
Additionally, your lawyer may have to show that the other party breached a duty of care they owed to you. This will help your lawyer establish negligence in your case.
Your lawyer can collect all of the evidence for you, present it to the insurer or judge, and build a case regarding the other party’s duty of care and negligence.
Negotiating Your Settlement
Negotiations may be the final part of your case. Since negotiating can resolve a case faster than going to court, you and your lawyer will likely continue negotiating with the insurer even after filing a lawsuit.
In negotiations, your lawyer will defend your damages, their valuation, the evidence, and your case against the other party. We will not settle for less than you deserve.
Taking Your Case to Court
While most cases settle out of court, a trial may be necessary if the insurer refuses to settle your case fairly. Your lawyer will discuss this option with you, and if you agree, your lawyer will prepare for trial. We can even hire various expert witnesses (like a burn injury expert witness) to corroborate your case.
You can expect your lawyer to fight hard for your due damages in the courtroom.
