What is My Sacramento Employment Discrimination Case Worth?

Determining the value of an employment discrimination case in Sacramento involves several factors. As experienced employment discrimination attorneys, we analyze each aspect of the case to estimate its worth.

  • Lost Wages: Compensation for the income you lost due to discrimination, including back pay and future lost earnings.
  • Emotional Distress: Damages for the mental suffering caused by discriminatory practices, which can vary widely based on the individual's experience.
  • Punitive Damages: In cases of particularly egregious conduct, these are awarded to punish the employer and deter future discrimination.
  • Legal Fees and Costs: Reimbursement for the expenses incurred in pursuing the discrimination claim.

The value of each case depends on the specific circumstances, including the severity of the discrimination, the duration of the misconduct, the impact on the victim, and the employer's conduct. Consulting with a knowledgeable attorney can help clarify the potential value of your case.

Understanding the value of your wrongful termination or discrimination case is crucial for making informed decisions about how to proceed. While each case is unique, our experience allows us to provide a realistic assessment of the potential outcomes and compensation.
