I understand why clients try to estimate the value of their claims. Knowing what you can expect to receive can help you plan for the future. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to calculate damages with any specificity. There are several reasons for this. Mainly, there are too many unknowns that go into a plaintiff’s damages. Although things like lost wages and medical expenses are relatively easy to quantify, intangible damages such as future treatment costs and loss of enjoyment of life are truly tough to calculate. Furthermore, any attorney who guarantees a certain recovery is not being honest.
