Determining the appropriate amount of damages is one of the toughest parts of a personal injury case. Damages vary widely from case to case, even when the injuries are similar. If you have an attorney, he or she should be able to explain this process to you. If you do not have an attorney, your should consult one immediately.

Almost every day we get a request for evaluation of a claim. We cannot respond to such a request, as there are simply too many elements to be considered. These include percentage of fault, age and health and background of the claimant, the nature of the injury, the treatment, the diagnosis, the prognosis, the cost of the treatment, and the outcome. Also to be taken into account in some cases are the amount and type of insurance coverage and the name of the insurance company. Most attorneys offer a free conference. We suggest that you talk to a few lawyers. Also, you should know that an independent study showed that claimants did better, even after fees, with a lawyer than without.

Need more information to evaluate the case. A disc in jury with stenosis or nerve entrapment that needs surgery and caused by accident based on medical evidence can be valued in six figures. No one except an attorney that has examined the case and read the medical records can intelligently value the case. If you have a credible medical expert that can establish the cause(connection) between the accident and injury you may get substantial value in the case. I am assuming a kid was also in the incident and again the value will depend on various factors such as nature and extent of injuries, medical costs, past and future, pain and suffering, disfigurement, if any etc. That being said there are many factors that come in play Only certain thing is that there is value to the case depending on the knowledge and experience of the lawyer handling it.

A proper response cannot be given just on that information. It will depend on many factors including amount of medical bills, impairment rating, and testimony about activities , age and many more. You should have counsel for such a case.

    It is impossible to predict a specific recovery amount because of the many variables involved in such a case. An attorney would have to know how the accident happened, who had insurance, what kind of insurance, how much insurance, where it occurred, etc, along with past medical issues, and many others to give you a reasonable estimate. I recommend contacting an experienced personal injury attorney in your area to discuss the case.

    While it is true that there are certain typical ranges for different types of injuries, assessment of damages in a personal injury case requires detailed analysis of liability, the injuries, and the effect of those injuries upon the individual. This analysis includes application of legal principles, evidentiary factors, medical documentation, out of pocket expenses, calculation of future losses and experience in your jurisdiction as to likely range of prospective jury awards. For example, will you require surgery? Did you lose time from work? What is the extent of your disability? Do you know how much the policy limit of the other driver is? The questions go on and for good reason. A "cookie-cutter" approach, a standard answer or a formula would be a disservice to someone such as yourself, who needs the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer. It's possible that your case might be worth zero. It is also possible that, like a recent client of mine, the settlement could reach six figures. To answer the question properly, one would need extensive examination of all the evidence, particularly the medical records. I typically spend about 4 - 6 hours reviewing a file once it is complete in order to determine my settlement position. Many people use this site to ask what their case is worth. Our answers are always: Get in touch with a personal injury lawyer in your area. That is the best way to get the best result in your case.

    Anyone who tells you what you can receive based upon the information provided would be a magician. There are several factors that go into any car wreck claim: First and foremost what are the policy limits for the at-fault driver and any under insured motorist coverage you have? Is there any resident relative coverage? Have you sent them a demand and are they in "bad faith" as a result of not responding? Is there clear liability (meaning the at-fault driver was cited and plead guilty). Are there aggravating circumstances to the crash, DUI, reckless driving, texting while driving, etc.? What are your medical damages (amount of medical bills)?? What are your past lost wages? What will your future anticipated wage loss be? What are your future anticipated medical cost for your injury? Who is the insurance company (some insurance companies fight no matter what, meaning you will have to take them to court or litigation). All of these and some other factors go into the decision of "how much" for you and "the kid's injury"? Good luck.

    There are not set amounts per body part or set amount based on whether a child was injured. All settlement amounts are based on the amount of medical bills, lost wages, injury to personal property and pain and suffering. If you have little medical bills, your settlement will also be low. If you would like a more accurate estimate of your settlement, you should contact an attorney with the exact amounts billed.

    As I have said many times before on this site, the value of any personal injury case depends on three things: the nature of the liability, the nature and extent of the damage caused and the permancy of the damage caused. In general, herniated discs are serious injuries. You should seek the help of an attorney. Attorneys work on most personal injury matters on a contingent fee. This means a percentage of the money received from the insurance carrier.
