WHAT IS THE VALUE OF MY BALTIMORE INJURY CASE? What is considered in determining the amount of an award?
Baltimore personal injury lawyers ask every day that jurors are instructed to consider several factors in fashioning an appropriate award: the nature and extent of plaintiff's injuries, and the length of the process of recuperation; the effect those injures have on the mental and physical condition of the plaintiff; physical and mental pain and anguish, past, present, and future; disfigurement, scarring, and embarrassment; medical expenses past, present, and future; loss of earning-or earrings potential- past, present, and future. Many of these components are explored in greater detail in other chapters of this volume.
