How Much Will I get for my Personal Injury Case?

Of course the most important consideration in any personal injury award is the “in your pocket” number. After attorney fees, litigation costs, outstanding medical balances, and everything else has been accounted for: “How much do you get”? There may be a lot of lip service paid to notions like “it’s not really about the money”, but, at the end of the day:

...... it’s really about the money.

In many business transaction there is a total number and a net number. A personal injury case is no different. The total number is of course the overall settlement or verdict. Of course you have agreed to pay your lawyer for his or her services, and that must be accounted for, as must any costs that lawyer has advanced for you. There may be medical liens on the recovery that must be handled as well. Obviously, a lawyer can help improve the clients bottom line maximizing the recovery.
