"....... how much is my case worth?"
In addition, though, it is probably the most legitimate. Someone, who, through no fault of their own, sustains personal injury at the hands of another, is immediately and unexpectedly confronted with a number of highly pressing concerns.

- They may be facing surgery or extensive recuperation.
- They cannot enjoy things they way they once did.
