Do I Have a Good Personal Injury Case?
If you’ve been injured in an accident such as a car accident, semi truck accident, motorcycle accident, or suffering the death of a family member you may be wondering if you have a personal injury case. If you think you may have a case, call the law office of Brent Gordon Law Firm in Idaho Falls or Pocatello for a free consultation. We can usually tell you over the phone if you have a good case.
Factors of a Good Personal Injury Case
- You are suffering an injury or injuries due to the negligence or carelessness from the responsible party. For example, a person was sending a text message while driving and ran a stop sign hitting another vehicle and causing injuries to that driver. The driver who was texting is considered negligent for disregarding the responsibility of paying attention to the road while driving and causing injury to another.
- Injury or harm (compensatory damages) resulted from an accident. In the above example, if the person injured suffered a broken arm which resulted in medical bills, lost wages, and/or pain and suffering, the injury would be considered to have caused compensatory damages. These types of damages are things that the injured party may be compensated for.
How Much is My Personal Injury Claim Worth?
A personal injury claim worth varies depending on the type of accident as well as a number of other factors. Some of these factors include who is liable, how severe are the injuries, and how hard is your personal injury attorney willing to fight for you. A good lawyer will build the value of an injury claim by pursuing recovery of all damages by hiring doctors, economists, and other experts to document all recoverable damages. The personal injury attorneys at Brent Gordon Law Firm are experienced in maximizing the value of an injury claim and will fight for every penny you are owed.
Determining the Worth of a Personal Injury Case
The amount of your claim could be based on the expenses of a few factors such as:
- Lost wages
- Medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Stress or burdens on you or your family
These factors greatly vary depending on if you’ve been injured in a car accident, motorcycle accident, semi truck accident, or suffering a wrongful death of a loved one. The experienced and knowledgeable personal injury attorneys at Brent Gordon Law Firm believe every client deserves fair representation to gain to compensation deserved from their injury claim.

How Long Does It Take to Settle a Personal Injury Case?
Every personal injury case is different and will take different amounts of time to settle. It can take months or it could even take years to reach a fair settlement agreement with all parties responsible.
A responsible party that often drags out a fair settlement is the insurance company. Often times insurance companies like to make a “low ball” offer to get the client to settle faster. These offers are to persuade accident victims to avoid pursuing a lawsuit or the case further. However, if you have an experienced attorney on your side from Brent Gordon Law Firm, you are in good hands. Our lawyers will fight for every penny you are owed.
By refusing to accept an initial low ball settlement offer from an insurance company, you and your attorney may proceed with a follow-up offer or pre-trial preparation.
Accepting an Offer of Compromise from the Insurance Company
After an accident, many people feel confused as to what they should do. That is why hiring an experienced and knowledgeable personal injury attorney from Brent Gordon Law Firm will take away a lot of headache from your case. Once you have received a settlement offer from the insurance company, you have to make the decision as to whether to accept or make a counteroffer. If you cannot reach a settlement that all parties feel comfortable with, you will end up with a lawsuit.
Should I Accept an Offer of Compromise?
Deciding whether to settle depends on a variety of factors. Hiring an experienced personal injury attorney will greatly help to make such decisions. A personal injury attorney from Brent Gordon Law Firm will be able to advise you on this important decision. Or if the offer is completely unreasonable, the attorney will fight aggressively to get a fair settlement offer. The attorneys at Brent Gordon Law Firm are trusted, aggressive and experienced. We know how to handle the insurance company to ensure our clients will receive a fair settlement offer.
What to Consider When Making the Decision to Accept an Offer
When you don’t know how your case will be handled in court or if the insurance will make a better offer, it is difficult to know what to do. Consider how the insurance company is arriving at the settlement offer. Have they taken into consideration pain and suffering? The cost of all medical bills, etc.? In addition, have the injuries and damages made permanent changes to your lifestyle or ability to work in the future? These are all things to make sure the insurance company is taking into consideration before accepting a settlement offer.
