Is there a subjective component?

You bet there is, which highlights some of the inherent complexities in assigning value to a case. Seasoned Baltimore personal injury and accident lawyers that try their cases have no doubt heard a defense lawyer say after a deposition, "they will make a good witness", or, more ominously, "they are not believable". Now, to be sure, that is one opinion, and defense lawyers don't determine the amount of money awarded to an injury victim [although they do have input as far a what an adjuster may do]. But juries do. Experienced Baltimore personal injury and accident lawyers have seen that some folks are better at conveying how they feel than others. Some people may be eloquent and verbose when describing a mechanical problem, or how catch rockfish, but, when it comes to describing their pain levels in the weeks after an accident, their powers of communication escape them. It is subjective, and can be difficult to gauge. But how a particular injury victim comes across to jurors definitely can have an impact on the amount of the award.
