HOW MUCH IS MY BALTIMORE PERSONAL INJURY CASE WORTH? Give me the numbers!
The most recent national study conducted by the Department of Justice tells us that the median award in all tort case is $24,000.00 [just as many awards below that number as above it]. 2 out of 3 plaintiffs recovered $50,000 or less, while 4 out of 100 received a million or more. The median national award in a motor vehicle accident was $15,000 [again, just as many awards below that number as above it]. 4 out of 10 motor vehicle accident victims received less than $10,000. A seasoned Baltimore personal injury lawyer can give you guidance on a reasonable value range for your case. Do you have a million dollar case?
